Abstract

The present paper describes the features and implementation of SmartVox an application designed to help vocal ensembles learn and perform polyphonic music. Technically, SmartVox is a distributed web application that delivers audiovisual scores through the performer’s mobile devices. From a singer’s point of view, this setup allows for the synergy between visual and acoustic stimuli, which facilitates the interpretive and performative processes, particularly in polyphonic passages. It also enables spatial separation of the performers (cori spezzati), and speeds up the learning process of unfamiliar musical materials (e.g. microtonal tuning, texts in a foreign language). The ubiquity of smartphones makes such a distributed system affordable and allows the use of SmartVox in multiple contexts, from professional ensembles to pedagogical and recreational practices.
