14 August 2011 / PHONO:GRAPHIC
An evening in collaboration with Soundfjord
6 – 9 pm
Musical graphic notation is a written representation of music that uses none or only few of the elements of traditional staff notation. Musical graphics, on the other hand, has its own aesthetic value as a visual art and does not have to be defined through its translatability into music. Like visual scoresâ€”that is, images instead of graphicsâ€”musical graphics are composed not with the intent of producing concrete music; it may, however, be translated into music.
For PHONO:GRAPHIC, Sunday Sound Waves and SoundFjord have decided to look at graphic/alternative scores. “Alternative scores” suggesting the possibility for artists and musicians to play and extend upon the conventional vocabulary of music; to liberate the performer from rigid orchestration; and to open up this form of representation to individual or group interpretation.
SoundFjord will focus on the use of visual elements with reference to standard notation and will extend this format outwards to notations that may not have any connection to the stave or to quavers or semibreves. Representations of melody and form will depend on the relationships of composer, performer, and listener.
The evening will feature an eclectic mix of performance complimented by works made for screen, and on paper. The audience will be given the opportunity to listen to scores and look at the objects, drawings and notation the works have been realised from. Visitors will also be able to talk to the performers and to ask questions about their performances and how they themselves became interested in extending their musical vocabulary.
Featuring live performances by Tim Yates, Noura Sanatian and Benedict Taylor; Jan Hendrickse; Patrick Farmer, Daniel Jones and David Lacey, and realisations of the vocal-, graphic- and video-scores of Ella Finer, Bill Thompson and Jan Hendrickse, respectively.
The evening also includes AV works by David Chapman with David Cottridge, Gary James Joynes (Clinker), and Claudia Molitor; installation by Steve Roden, and Luke Munn; and paper-works by Seth-Kim Cohen, Jez riley French, John Kannenberg, Danny McCarthy, Seth Guy, Stuart Russell, James Saunders, Jo Thomas, David Toop, and many othersâ€¦
The event is FREE and open to the public.
SoundFjordÂ is a gallery, research unit and venue dedicated to the Sonic Arts.
The gallery was founded to redress the current lack of exhibiting space exclusively for works of sound art andÂ focuses on the exhibition and documentation of art works, the development of artists within their creative and research practices, and ultimately, the promotion of sound art and its related interests to a wider audience.
This creative venture â€“ a partnership between a fine artist and sound designer â€“ is a centre for experimentation and collaboration, with sound being central to all works performed, researched or exhibited: as inspiration, conduit for artistic expression, or simply, the resulting work.
About Sunday Sound Waves:
Throughout six weeks in July and August at GALERIE8, Sunday Sound Waves will aim to critically engage with the surrounding environment through sound, and to explore the influences it has on new ways of making and experiencing visual forms.
The series includes a broad range of artists and creators that are increasingly blurring genre lines and sensibilities in the realms of sound and the visual. Participating artists will do this by recording the sounds of architectural spaces, re-inventing musical instruments, using sound as a sculptural material, or working with music and cinematography.
Sunday Sound WavesÂ is guest curated by Alexa Kusber.
