Duets by 0th
Saturday, June 26, 2010
FREE @ Cinders
Participants in DUETS are invited to bring instruments and laptops to Southern Exposure in San Francisco and Cinders Gallery in Brooklyn. Individuals will be paired up (one in SF one in Brooklyn) to make a graphic score to be performed over video conference. Graphic scores are a form of music notation that uses symbols and text to convey information about the performance of a piece of music. 0th will give some instructions on what a graphic score can be, from a dot on a piece of paper to an elaborate landscape, and their history in relation to electronic composition. The duet partners will use a free on-line drawing program that can do real-time edits with multiple users, to create their score and then perform the piece. At the end of the workshop, everyone’s scores will be printed out as documentation of the project.
Everyone is welcome to participate, musicians and non-musicians alike. Extra instruments and laptops will be made available for those who do not have them.
