Redman, G. William
MetadataShow full item record
Book is a collection of over 100 interrelated graphic compositions, each rendered in black ink and filling exactly one 8.5''x11'' sheet of paper. The graphics are radical extensions of traditional music notation that disrupt the apprehension of historical performance conventions. Book is presented without written instructions and is available for realization in any part, for any duration, by any individual(s) (including amateur musicians, beginning musicians, and non-musicians), in any medium or media, at any time, in any place. Trusting and trustworthy performers are encouraged to interact with the score rather than to necessarily obey it.* *This dissertation is a compound document (contains both a paper copy and a CD as part of the dissertation).
