VISUAL ART

 

Artist Statement

“Graphic Scores" always intrigued me. Pioneered by Earle Brown and Cornelius Cardew, I found it interesting that the visual elements of graphic scores had little to do with traditions of the classical music cannon. I set to explore the metaphysics of notation and began the retrograde of the graphic score procedure. Thus, I would not be using non-musical symbols to represent the musical interpretation process. Instead, I would be using the visual aesthetic of notation to create visual compositions. This process pushes notation past its functional limits to observe a new understanding of a material as it innately is. My works are “Composed" in the strict sense one writes music. [i.e. informed musical structures and theory, etc.]
