open 78: sight before sound
Combine the worlds of visual and sonic arts in this hands-on installment of Open 78! In this session we will explore the world of graphic scores as composers and performers. You'll create scores individually and/or collaboratively, and work in ensembles to perform in a short concert at the end of the workshop.
Materials will be provided, however participants are encouraged to bring their own art implements (pencils, markers, paint, paper, etc.). Light refreshments will be available.
Open 78 sessions are interactive workshops designed to make contemporary music accessible to everyone. Sessions are free and open for anyone to participate– bring a friend!
