Self Portrait (2002)
In late 2006 Self Portrait was realised for an ensemble of musicians at Manchester Metropolitan University, led by Julian Brooks, using networked laptops as digital score displays. The intention was to allow an ensemble to work dynamically with an open-form work. In this realisation each player has a laptop that connects to a central 'server'.
The conductor or musical director may use the server to send page-turn messages to update the player's displays and may also force them to jump between the blocks that make up the piece. Furthermore repeated bars or phrases can be marked out on the score by the conductor/director and migrated across the network to the players.
