9781441173102: Word Events: Perspectives on Verbal Notation

Verbal notation has emerged since the 1950s as a prominent medium in the field of experimental music, as well as in related areas of arts practice involving performance and object making. Works created with this type of notation are often referred to by their authors as event scores, prose scores, text scores or instruction scores.

Word Events features over 170 scores, many printed here for the first time, representing the works of more than 50 practitioners including George Brecht, John Cage, Cornelius Cardew, Pauline Oliveros, Yoko Ono, Michael Pisaro, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Jennifer Walshe and La Monte Young.

The commentaries in the book explore the compositional strategies and performance practice of particular works, contextualised by key essays, including previously hard-to-find texts by Lawrence Halprin and Kenneth Maue, together with many new statements and interviews from composers, artists and performers. This unique and wide-ranging collection of scores and writings will be indispensable to musicians, artists, those involved with community arts, and anyone with an interest in exploring the rich potential of the written word.

Descripción Continuum Publishing Corporation, United States, 2012. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is an outstanding collection of text scores from key composers and artists, as well as original essays and interviews offering guidance and lucid analysis. Word Events focuses on an approach to notation that uses the written word, as opposed to symbols, to convey information to whoever chooses to interpret the notation. Verbal notation is commonly used in experimental music, as well as related areas of arts practice involving performance or object making. Practitioners point to a number of reasons for using it: notation with written words is accessible to a wide range of people, including those who cannot read traditional Western stave notation; it can express temporal relationships between elements of a composition in a flexible way; it makes association with other writing contexts, such as poetry, prose, instructions, recipes, koans and aphorisms; it can express ideas with great precision; it can express generalities; it can determine many different types of relationships between the scorer and reader; and, it can express ideas and concepts as well as providing prescriptions for action. The aim of this book is to present a broad range of perspectives on how and why scorers use verbal notation. Nº de ref. de la librería AAC9781441173102
