Between Thought and Sound:
Graphic Notation in Contemporary Music

September 7–October 20, 2007

Opening Reception:
Friday, September 7, 6-8pm

Curated by Alex Waterman, Debra Singer, and Matthew Lyons

Exploring the intersection of drawing and sound, this show includes experimental scores by more than twenty contemporary composers who relinquish traditional musical notation in favor of their own invented visual systems of pictorial or “graphic” elements. Their musical compositions take the form of abstract drawings, videos, and digital renderings filled with complex pictograms, evocative mark-making, gestural symbols, and intricate codes of numbers, letters, and color. These highly personal vocabularies are the catalysts for a social process of translation and open-ended interpretation between composer and performer. Among the artists included in the exhibition are: Robert Ashley, Earle Brown, Herbert Brun, Cornelius Cardew, John Driscoll, Morton Feldman, Tom Johnson, Joan La Barbara, Meredith Monk, Anthony Ptak, Steve Roden, Marina Rosenfeld, Michael Schumacher, Elliott Sharp, Wadada Leo Smith, David Tudor, Stephen Vitiello, and Christian Wolff, among others.

Exhibition Hours:
Tue-Fri, 12-6pm; Sat 11-6pm FREE

This exhibition is sponsored by Altria Group, Inc.

Additional support was provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts., the Fifth Floor Foundation, and with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
