"The notation is more important than the sound. Not the exactitude and the success with which a notation notates a sound; but the musicalness of the notation in its notating." (Cornelius Cardew)
The project consists of a series of paintings - riverscapes - sighted from above
and abstracted to maps, graphically structured to serve as musical scores.
The paintings-scores are accompanied by the recordings of the performances
by several musicians.
The project investigates and questions the roles of composer and performer,
the auditory nature of the medium of music, and the interdependency
between the musical notation and the performance.
The participating musicians:
Shira Legmann | Orr Sinay | Nitai Levi | Shaul Kohn | Hovav Landoy | Tom Klein
