Abstract/Summary

For this live performance an amorphic graphic score is interpreted in multiple ways by a group of performers using DIY instruments and voice. The score has been synthesized from words and symbols of software interfaces. Inspired by the improvisational scores of Pauline Oliveros, Yoko Ono, Allan Kaprow, George Maciunas and Steve Reich, this work takes performance strategies from the mid 20th century into current discourse with technology. The work was developed through a series of workshops at Reading School of Art, with artists from Reading, London and Athens, and culminated in a live performance at South Street Arts Centre in July 2018. Supported by Reading International and The Arts Committee, University of Reading.
