Above: Some details of John Cage scores in the exhibition
As I mentioned in my last post, some of my notations are included in this show that is on currently at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery, University of Greenwich, 10 Stockwell Street, London, SE10 8EY.
Information about the show (courtesy of the University of Greenwich and David Ryan):
‘This exhibition examines the interface between the visual and the aural through notation, documentation, performance and video/moving image. Each of these aspects are currently being explored from many different perspectives by contemporary composers, musicians, visual artists, and film/videographers. Its basic starting point is the historical graphic score/new notational practices of the modernist avant-garde and how sound is captured and communicated.
