Cut and Splice: Dots And Lines
Online exhibition curated by Honor Harger
As part of the Cut and Splice music festival, presented by Sonic Arts
Network (http://www.sonicartsnetwork.org) and BBC Radio 3
(http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio3/cutandsplice/), Honor Harger has curated an
online exhibition that uses the networked space of the web to interrogate
the subjects of the score, notation and visual data as core elements in the
process of composition.
A great deal of sound art work using new technologies uses programming
environments and algorithmic systems to generate compositions. Generative
sound approaches have allowed musicians and programmers to develop new
interpretations of duration and construction. The evolving processes and
surfaces made possible by algorithmic sound softwares form new concepts of
both the composer and the score. The primacy of the composer is often
obscured in favour of a symbiotic relationship between the musician and the
In this context, what has become of the score?
-Can a score be said to exist within a software driven music environments?
-Are the visual interfaces examples of a new scoring system?
-Is the code used to programme generative sound software the new score?
