The wonder of Graphic Notations

If you are interested in infographics of any kind, you might really enjoy reading this feature on The Guardian webpage. Written by Tom Phillips it looks at what can probably be best termed as ‘alternative’ muscial notations. Make sure you also check out the ‘Graphic Scores In pictures’ section, where you can not only see some extraordinary scores, but also find some links to hear them performed and learn more (the wonder of hyperlinks).

  1. Alke – thank you so much for this link! I went to their performance at Turner Sims, Southampton (Thursday 3rd Oct) and listened to a talk by Tom Phillips. The performance was stunning – so emotionally charged, and fascinating to see how graphic and photographic images were translated into sound for instruments and voice. Truly inspiring!
