Within the context of EU Culture 2007 project COMEDIA, the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) at Queen’s University Belfast is hosting an open platform on network music performance. disparate bodies 3.0 is a developmental process for exploring musical interactions in geographically displaced sites. The Open Platform is a forum for the exploration of key issues in “playing apart”: Performance Cues, Distributed Electronic Scores, Remote Monitoring, Performance Avatars and Dramaturgy. The work is developed through live events and online resources at the project’s website (www.sarc.qub.ac.uk/pages/db) which contains detailed information on the project, events, blogs, as well as links to streams and recorded media. disparate bodies 3.0 is the third in a series of strategies that address the network as a performance environment and builds on research at the Sonic Arts Research Centre and COMEDIA partners together with CCRMA (Stanford University), and the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, NY. disparate bodies is led by Pedro Rebelo in collaboration with Franziska Schroeder and Alain Renaud.
Disparate Bodies 3.0 is part of the Fragmented Orchestra.
