Making Radio History with Wisconsin Public Radio
Radio listeners in Wisconsin will have a special treat tomorrow (Sunday, June 24, 2012). They'll be the first-ever radio audience to experience a new score-following technology developed by MuseScore and SampleSumo. Wisconsin Public Radio is going to broadcast the entire 83 minutes of Kimiko Ishizaka's Open Goldberg Variations, and at the same time, invite listeners to watch the score by visiting the website opengoldberg.wpr.org. The score that appears in the browser is the new edition of the Goldbergs that was produced by Werner Schweer as a part of the Open Goldberg Variations project. I was interviewed by Norman Gilliland on WPR's "The Midday" show, discussing the new possibilities that MuseScore scores and score-following technology brings us. Here is that interview.
