Performances of Graphic Scores.
« on: April 22, 2017, 10:53:32 PM »
I bet there are some fabulous things! But apart from The Scratch Orchestra's CD of The Great Learning, Hespos's Z and maybe some things by Cage (are the song books graphic scores?), I don't think I've heard anything.

Do any of the composers here use graphic scores? And if not, why not?  Are you all anal control freaks or something?

Oh, here's stripsody

All of my scores are graphic in nature. The constructed book of the score itself, and the overall design, is indeed part of the music - if indeed it is played or just imagined.

I've never made a graphic score but that's mostly just because I can't draw

Iannis Xenakis - Pithoprakta

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/nvH2KYYJg-o" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/nvH2KYYJg-o</a>

I think the images are so beautiful I'm trying to find a way to put part of it on the wall. Is it Xenakis's score or is it someone's graphic reconstruction? I see now it's a graphic realisation by Pierre Carré.
