Scores by students of the Graphic Score Workshop that I taught in Blue Diamond, NV, 2013

Last year at a music festival I taught a graphic score workshop for all ages. Some people were trained musicians and composers, and others had no experience in this field. I divided the 2-hour class into 3 parts: 1) what is a graphic score? 2) how to make a graphic score? (in this case using acrylics) and 3) making a group score and having musicians play it. The final part of the workshop was where things got really interesting. We divided into two groups, and each group organized and painted a group score. Three volunteer musicians played one of them at the end of the workshop. I wish I had recorded it. People in the class were very perceptive listeners and thinkers, and sharing our perceptions after the performance was fascinating. Here are some (sadly, lo-res) shots of some of the scores that came of the workshop:
