Designing Notation from Screen

Development of the three line Raph notation system necessitated a change to screen reading, with page turns achieved through a pedal. The density of the notation renders reading from printed format difficult.

This ensemble performance was a development of this line of design thought. The ACMG experimented with cueing musical performance from screen. The range of visual cues included text, icons, traditional music notation, graphic notation combined with photography and painting. This was combined with other forms of physical cueing within the ensemble.

This experimental performance is notable for its continuity - one single 30 minute performance. The medium allowed the ensemble to concentrate purely on their performance - no printed page distraction.
