Three sounds, three volumes



I had to make a lot of extra cards for my own piece in the Hunter's Moon Score Trail.
People chose to interpret it in different ways, some using my framework and some using their own. There are some examples below.
The whole project made me think of how I look at things and how composers look at things and what the differences are. It made me realise that I look at graphic scores from more of a visual standpoint and composers read them totally differently - as a code for making sound primarily. It was interesting to see how many members of the public used my cards to make a score whose primary focus seemed to be the visual. It was obvious some really thought about sound and thought about representing that sound with this frawework I had supplied. And some made an interesting image which also happened to be a score!

It is hard to break away from your primary discipline but it was a great exercise in trying!
