Graphic Score Clara Claus with Bryce Dessner
Filmed live during Crossing Brooklyn Ferry Curated by Bryce and Aaron Dessner Produced by BAM Apr 27, 2013 BAM Rose Cinemas
Graphic Score was performed at BAM on the occasion of the 2013 Crossing Brooklyn Ferry festival. It's a video of eight movements, each one is a drawing on a paper scroll made with four different mediums, ink, gouache, oil stick, pencil, and each medium addresses a different instrument, organ/keyboard, electric guitar, trombone, drums.
The video is the recording of the eight unrolling scrolls as a score for musicians. Keeping in mind the common vocabulary of the musical and visual world during its making, the score breaks away from the writing system where a symbol equals a note and a rhythm. Instead it calls for the musicians to interpret a gesture, a color, a void, a pattern, through improvisation.
