Artist's Statement:

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.
