Video to Play During the Performance
Audio Score for Camera Operator
This recording is to be put on a playback device and listened to on headphones by the camera operator.
The camera-operator-performer should perform each instruction until the next instruction is spoken.
The verbal instructions include:
1. Follow left (the left hand of the performer)
2, Follow right (the right hand of the performer)
3. Be still (keep camera still)
4. Zoom to close-up
5. Zoom to wide shot (the entire body of the piano in frame)
6. Blur (out of focus)
7. Focus (focus the camera)
8. Handheld (creating a shaky handheld motion)
The three sine tone beeps that occur throughout the audio are there to signal that a new instruction is coming up and help prepare you for the next instruction.
You can also choose to cover the eye of the camera in your own time, creating a blacken image.
Below is the Jitter patch that the performance video and camera’s live feed is to play through.
