The Decibel Complete John Cage Variations ScorePlayer
The Decibel Complete John Cage Variations ScorePlayer ( or Decibel John Cage Variations for short) is an iPad application that provides automated score generation for the John Cage Variations I, II, III, IV and VI as well as a star map reader to use in Variations V and the hard to find score scores for VII and VIII. Prototyped by the ensemble since 2011, this app is designed to be used in association with the scores in some cases.
The Decibel John Cage Variations app guides performers through a realisation of the complete John Cage Variations. It generates a series of animated and standard graphic notation scores in real time that allow the works to be easily interpreted while staying true to the aleatoric nature of the originals. The App can be networked between multiple iPads for use by an ensemble.
Play piece by piece or as an entire concert featuring all 7 Variations.
The app is designed to be used in conjunction with Cage's scores, and is released in conjunction with Peter's Edition.
