The dfscore system is a dynamic score display system built to function over a local network to display a variety of musical material. The primary motivations for building the system were to allow for a middle ground between composition and improvisation and to be able to dynamically restructure and reorchestrate material on any given instrumentation.
The dfscore system enables groups of any size to collectively improvise without a conductor while still retaining moments of synchronicity. Each performer’s device, connected to a central router or wifi network, displays information that is only relevant to them: melodic or rhythmic fragments, accompanying tempo and count in, role to assume, etc...
The system is currently being developed by Rodrigo Constanzo and Richard Knight thanks to a commission by Jazz North.
