Ricerca

La ricerca di Tempo Reale si esprime su più fronti, dalla definizione di nuovi contesti musicali fino alla sperimentazione tecnologica. Le attività di ricerca prevedono periodi intensivi di sperimentazione, laboratori, conferenze, pubblicazioni sui seguenti temi:

  • SPERIMENTAZIONE MUSICALE. La ricerca di nuove tecniche compositive e di proposta della musica, con particolare riferimento agli spazi non convenzionali, all’improvvisazione e alle nuove tecnologie.
  • INTERAZIONE. Lo studio di nuove tipologie di interazione uomo-macchina per la gestione ed il controllo delle azioni gestuali durante gli spettacoli dal vivo e i contesti installativi.
  • SOUNDSCAPE. Lo studio del paesaggio sonoro, tanto in ambito scientifico che creativo
  • MUSIC NOTATION. Lo studio di nuove forme di notazione per la parte elettronica di opere musicali del repertorio, con particolare riguardo alla opere con elettronica di Luciano Berio
  • DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING. Lo sviluppo di strumenti software per la spazializzazione e l’elaborazione dal vivo del suono e per l’automazione delle esecuzioni dal vivo di opere con elettronica.
  • SOUND ARCHIVE. Mantenimento, accrescimento e studio dell’archivio storico e corrente del centro.

Computer Music Journal 27 (2), 2003 MIT Press - pp. 30-46.

Luciano Berio has made significant contributions to the development of electronic music, from the Studio di Fonologia Musicale of the RAI in Milan, to IRCAM in Paris, to the Italian centre Tempo Reale, founded in Florence in 1987 with the objective of creating a structure in which to investigate the possibilities of real-time interaction between live performance and programmed digital systems. Tempo Reale is today a center of musical production,
research, and education where many major Italian composers, in addition to Berio himself, create their works and where important works from the electroacoustic repertoire are performed. [...]

Sound and architecture: an electronic music installation at the new auditorium in Rome

F. Giomi, D. Meacci and K. Schwoon
Proceedings of the XIV Colloquium on Musical Informatics (XIV CIM 2003), Firenze, Italy.

The paper describes the design and the realization of a big sound installation produced by Tempo Reale for the inauguration of Renzo Piano’s new auditorium in Rome. Such work required a close collaboration between musicians and architects. The authors describe the general principles of the work, continuing with the criteria adopted to interpret electronic music in space. The general features of the technical system are also discussed.

Electroacoustic music in a multi-perspective architectural context: a sound installation for Renzo Piano’s Auditorium in Rome

Organised Sound
8 (2), 2003, Cambridge University Press, pp. 157-162.

This paper describes the musical and technical design and the realisation of a large-scale sound installation produced and realised by Centro Tempo Reale for the inauguration of Renzo Piano’s new Auditorium in Rome. The installation was mainly dedicated to electroacoustic music: the complex technological set-up offered a new instrument for which electroacoustic pieces were transcribed. The techniques and the aesthetic implications of this transcription process within the context of an installation are discussed. [...]

An SQL-Based Control System for Live Electronics

F. Canavese, F. Giomi, D. Meacci and K. Schwoon
Proceedings of the International Computer Music Conference (ICMC 2005), Barcelona, Spain - pp. 753-756.

Managing control data in live electronic systems can be very complex. Ideally, in a rehearsal situation the performers should be able to focus on the musically relevant problems and make significant changes to the structure of musical events in an immediate way. To obtain this kind of flexibility, a performance system has been developed at Tempo Reale which makes traditional live electronic instruments interact with a relational database, implemented using Structured Query Language (SQL).
