Sheet Music: Score
Action music : for any number of instruments / Erik Griswold.
by Erik Griswold (2013)
Action Music may be played by any number of instruments, in any combination, from soloist to orchestra! Throughout most sections of the piece, the performers play together in a tight rhythmic unison, following the same general melodic shape. However each player decides for themselves exactly what pitches, sounds, and instrumental techniques to employ. Some sections use graphic notation - dots, dashes, and scribbles to depict the musical textures. Other sections use descriptions to suggest changes in sound or mood, such as "Massive Noise," "Drunken, wobbly," or "Sharp and edgy."
