JMTE_Medium

The Journal of Music, Technology and Education recently published a special edition on the Online Orchestra, an Arts & Humanities Research Council-funded project that run between October 2014 to March 2016. Federico Reuben contributed to this project as lead software developer and as a composer of a piece for female choir, string orchestra, brass and flute ensembles with musicians distributed across four locations playing together online.

Dr Reuben co-authored two articles in this issue: “Telematic performance and the challenge of latency” and “Designing a system for Online Orchestra: Computer hardware and software”, which describe some of the practical and technical challenges of distributed network performance and the solutions developed during the project to allow orchestral music to be performed over the internet. Additionally, in ”Composing for a latency-rich environment”, Rofe and Geelhoed (2017) interview him and analyse his composition Spiritus Telecommunitas (written for/with Aleks Kolkowski) alongside two other compositions written for the Online Orchestra system.

You can find this special edition here and more information about Online Orchestra here.

The Online Orchestra project has also recently won gold in the arts and humanities category of this year’s Reimagine Education awards; as well as it was awarded silver in the European competition (cross-discipline).
