Graphic scores

Graphic scores evolved around the 1950’s when more contemporary composers writing experimental music couldn’t rely on traditional music notation to be as effective. The way they work is basically through a series of visual symbols that can take almost any shape or form to aid the performer. Graphic scores took my interest because it related closely to the way sound can be represented in many different visual forms.
