We told you last week why ‘Maestra’ is no longer a respectable form of address.
So meet Conductrix.
It’s a video game that can, supposedly, teach anyone how to conduct.
It says: Conductrix will include tutorials on basic beat patterns and gestures; how to communicate articulations, cuing, dynamics, and tempo changes; and other tools and information to assist people in figuring out their own conducting style.
“I’m absolutely opposed to elitism and keeping people out… I think that enabling people to express their musical spirits, lets them be their best selves.”
