Hayward Tuning Vine

Microtonal tuba player and composer Robin Hayward joins N.K. for a one-day introductory workshop on the recently developed Hayward Tuning Vine interface for Just Intonation.

Just Intonation is the system of microtonal tuning based on whole number frequency relationships, and is the acoustic basis underlying such musical intervals as the perfect fifth and major third, as well as less common microtonal intervals such as the septimal minor seventh and neutral sixth. Through colour-coding and spatialising the harmonic relationships, the Hayward Tuning Vine allows them to be explored intuitively, enabling them to be seen as well as heard. It therefore makes Just Intonation more accessible to people who might otherwise be put off by its apparently abstract and mathematical nature, and provides an ideal introduction to the theory and practice of microtonal music.

TILDE: ACTIVE LISTENING AND PLACE’S AFFORDANCES

The workshop led by Tilde (Attila Faravelli, Enrico Malatesta and Nicola Ratti) consists in an overview concerning themes as the echolocation, the aural architecture and the soundspace relationship, followed by practical sessions where the participants aurally experience a site. During the practical section each participant is provided with a kit, consisting of about ten small objects (realized within the project Aural Tools) and receives some suggestions about its use. These protoinstruments are very easy to play; they are not intended for producing sound per se, instead they are designed to enact the aural potentialities of a site. The aim of the workshop is to produce sounds out of a negotiation between active listening and a place’s affordances, wherein the participants listen to themselves in the act of producing sound, in a specific space and time. The practical section of the workshop can take place both in the open air, indoor as well as where there are specific fascinations. No specific musical skills are requested for participating. Groups of people of all ages can participate.
