Event Details

'Drawn From Sound' brings together a variety of Australasian graphic music scores in the first survey of its kind to be held in Western Australia. A practice developed in the 1950s, the creation of graphic scores came about as more traditional notations were no longer adequate for music that required elements of improvisation, extended techniques, a foregrounding of texture over melody or harmony and different performance formats. 'Drawn From Soun'd is curated by Perth composer and sound artist Cat Hope, and will showcase Australian contemporary graphic notation practice in a variety of possible forms – as objects, videos, interactive programs or images.

Supported by a program of performances and artist talks, Drawn From Sound celebrates the graphic score not only as a valid form of musical notation, but also as a unique source of visual expression.

Opens: Thursday March 28, 5pm runs until April 12. Opening night concert: 6.30pm, works performed by Decibel. Artists Talks: Tues April 2, Tues April 9, 1pm Performances: Thur 4 April, Thur April 11, 1pm
