After our project kick-off meeting in September, the project team has been working diligently over the past few months to review the literature on online choral singing, improve the Soundjack platform (and even joined a virtual concert), and draft questions for our online survey. After months of virtual meetings, it was finally time to meet again in person earlier this week!
The first day of the meeting took place at the Stella Vorarlberg Privathochschule für Musik in Feldkirch, Austria. Surrounded by the sounds of rehearsals in the adjacing rooms, the project team on-site, ie. Alexander Carôt (HSA), Markus Rohregger (Mozarteum University), and Janine Hacker (University of Liechtenstein), discussed the status quo of the project and the survey (to be launched soon). A dinner at an Italian restaurant concluded day 1.
The second day took place at the University of Liechtenstein. The on-site team was gladly joined online by Heike Henning (Mozarteum University) and Susanne Häfner (HSA). In addition, Mirjana Schädler, conductor of the choir of the University of Liechtenstein, and Clarissa Frommelt (Agentur für Internationale Bildungsangelegenheiten Liechtenstein) were guests of the workshop. At our meeting, we exchanged thoughts about the online laboratory choir and many creative and exciting ideas for digital projects for the lab choir emerged. A nice #lunchWithAView at the caféteria of the University of Liechtenstein marked the end of our meeting.
The project team would like to thank the Stella Vorarlberg Privathochschule für Musik for the opportunity to hold part of the workshop on their premises, as well as Mirjana and Clarissa for their contributions to the workshop.
