dc.descriptionOm prosjektet. - Det kunstneriske utviklingsprosjektet Organisert tid – strategier for transmedial komposisjon, nærmer seg ferdigstilling. I prosjektet har Blom undersøkt hvordan lys, lyd og bevegelse kan inngå i en komposisjon der det ikke er et lydspor, en sekvens av bevegelser eller et lysforløp som står for seg. Men, at mediene er gjensidig avhengige for at komposisjonen skal forbli intakt.nb_NO
dc.description.abstractOrganized Time - Strategies for Transmedial Composition About the project. - The language that surrounds forms of art where several medias meet, is by no means standardized. Blom thinks of the complete category, several media meeting in forms of art, as interdisciplinary, and within this category he distinguishes between intermedial and transmedial. Blom presents the example of the ballet. In a ballet you have two or more complete media specific structures working in parallel. Taking out the music, the choreography would still stand on its own. You could also take out the choreography, and the music would still stand on its own. Blom refers to this as an intermedial situation. In his research Blom has tried to facilitate a situation where movement, sound and light are co-dependent to make sense. He aims for a structure from which you cannot extract a set of sounds, movements or lights and have a complete structure that stands on its own. Blom wants the media to need each other in order for a structure to rise and refer to this situation as transmedial. Research questions: Blom had two research questions that he wanted to encircle. Here is a short rendition of his findings. Research question #1: Which qualities, in an element, can be accentuated to discover the element’s potential for connections and kinship in a temporal composition? Blom writes: Temporality was already mentioned in my application. I assumed there would be more to find. The most obvious was degrees of intensity, from fast to slow and weak to strong. The intensity in how they fill and shape time. More surprisingly, but obvious once it is stated, is that an element’s potential for connection increases if it appears as incomplete. Being a good building block involves being a singular entity or incomplete, rather than a compound or complex. It´s also good if an element can be fairly abstract. Any kind of emblematic function or strong relation to an outside world will threaten potential connections inside a work. Research question #2: Which qualities, in a composition, are accentuated by exposing it at different sites? Blom writes: By sites I was referring to the gallery space, concert space, the video format, the sound recording and so forth. I argue that to put an installation out as a sound recording or a video can be to create a new work. I also found that institutions seemingly ask different questions. Galleries tend to ask what is it? and what does it mean? Music institutions tend to ask what does it sound like? and what is it doing? As a result, a thing tends to appear as instrumental in an institution of music and an object for interpretation in a gallery. Division of artistic output. - Through the span of his project Blom has worked artistically along parallel lines of notated music, electronic music, installations and finally a performance. He has divided the artistic output into categories of central works and surrounding works, giving the position of central works to those that pertain directly to the research questions. Surrounding works are included to cast a light on his practice as an artist and give a context to the central works. Central works: The Singer (2013) On Speed (2013) Stick, String and Light (2016) Time and Intensity (2016) Surrounding works: al Khowarizmis Mekaniske Orkester (2011) Lyrical Pieces (2013) Weak Questions Strong Music, hats off to Burrows and Ritsema (2015) Bring Me That Horizon (2016) Transmedial composition and perspectives. - Blom claims that transmedial composition is a little corner in the art world where medias meet and are mutually dependent in a common structure. - If my understanding of basic structures of time and intensity has any bearing outside my head, chances are I have obtained a new perspective on how to work across media as well as media specific. Blom hopes that his findings host an insight of value to dancers, musicians, performance artists and projects spanning new technology.nb_NO

dc.relation.haspartDissemination: Publishing and archiving. - Pending the approval of the project the reflection will be published as a pdf in the institutional archive Brage and in the Research Catalogue together with all of the soundand videofiles. I will also apply to publish through the NMH publishing series as well as a series of articles in the Journal for Artistic Research, again, pending the approval of the reflection. In addition the production network for electronic arts ( PNEK ) in Norway has invited me to write an article based on my work for a coming anthology on electronic arts. Teaching. - As a part of the fellowship I have done the following teaching at NMH: • Supervised Niklas Adams Master in Performance Technology. • A three day introductory course in Max/MSP for other research fellows. • I taught in Performative Thing, an interdisciplinary course on a master level for students from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, the Norwegian Academy of Music and the Norwegian Theater Academy. • I developed and taught two semesters of LYKU 20, a course on sound arts history and present practices. Internal presentations of project: • The Soup Council, lunch presentations by and for research fellows. • The Section for Composition, Theory and Music Technology, presentation for colleagues • Presentation on kick – off for all employees of NMH. • Composition forum, for the composition students. National and international dissemination. - I have done concerts and exhibitions in connection with the project at: • Ircam Centre Pompidou, Paris FR. 2012 • World Music Days, Ghent BE. 2012 • Only Connect, Oslo NO. 2013 • Ultima festival, Oslo NO. 2013 • Audio Art, Krakow PL. 2013 • Metamorf Biennale for Art and Technology, Trondheim NO. 2014 • Nordic Music Days, København DK. 2015 • NMH, Oslo NO. 2015 • Vinterfestspillene, Røros NO. 2016 • Final artistic result at Sentralen, Oslo NO. 2016. - The reflection, at different stages of development, has been presented at: • Ircam Centre Pompidou, Paris FR. 2012 • Ultima Academy, Oslo NO. 2013 • Audio Art, Krakow PL. 2013 • EPARM (European Platform for Artistic Research in Music, Graz AU. 2015). - The Lyrical Pieces and Bring Me That Horizon are distributed nationally and internationally through the distribution network Phonofile. Both works were broadcast on national radio (P2) in connection with their premieres. - All my scores are available through the Norwegian National Library. - My foremost contribution is the strategy for transmedial composition and in particular its high level of blending artistic media. - My challenge came from cross - disciplinary work. My contribution is to the composing artists, professional and students, from a variety of backgrounds who come to work in the fields of music, performance, technology based and cross - disciplinary arts. It is my hope that those who compose in these crossroads will find my strategy for transmedial composition of some use. With Organized time, strategies for transmedial composition, the works and reflection, I would like to make my own contribution to the international society of art and the society for artistic research.nb_NO
