Portfolio (Home)

This portfolio documents ten works created during research for the doctoral thesis "Tones out of Nowhere": Situating the Design and Development of Experimental Notations for Network (Telematic) Performance (2015), as part of a practice-as-research methodology. The portfolio of graphic scores and performance documentation provides an overview and context for the works: A Microcosmic Theory of a Stroll (2011), Veg (2012), Lichen (2012), Skyline/Rooftops (2012), Harbour Reflecting on City Centre (2012), Palm House (2012), UnRavel (I) (2013), Ranunculales (2013), Penélopé (2013), and The Silver Cord (2014). These works formed part of a personal artistic practice and a testing method for theories about how the properties of graphic notation could interplay with the concept and environment of network music. The first two years of work in this portfolio—represented by works from 2011-2012—explore static graphic notation in watercolours and pastels on paper and focus on testing aspects of communication between composer and performers. The second two years of the portfolio—works from 2013-2014—encompass the development of personal interest in using textiles as dynamic three-dimensional notation and as a view of the network made visible in performance.
