Phillip Greenlief’s graphic scores at the Center for New Music

electricity

On Tuesday I will be playing a couple of graphic scores by Phillip Greenlief with Lisa Mezzacappa (bass) and Phillip himself (reeds). The concert will take place at the Center for New Music in San Francisco. There will be a bunch of extremely exciting acts before: Curt Brown & Fletcher Pratt (modular synthesizers); RITUAL 1: thicket ensemble (Suki O’Kane, Tim Kim, and Katherine McDonald); violinist Jeffrey Young, who is coming all the way from Brooklyn.

Phillip created a series 37 of graphic scores, entitled BARBED WIRE. They feature a variety of visual ideas, evoking a whole range of associations; each of the 3 players has their own line assigned; those can be straight, leading to “knots” – aural “occurrences” and “events”; wavy lines; structures that go both in a horizontal direction – reminding of traditional musical scores and in a vertical direction, or even all 3 lines crossing and overlapping each other. The possibilities for interpretation are endless and, of course, the music is completely different every time it’s played.

The concert will start at 7 pm.

Tickets: $15 General, $10 Members
Tickets available at the door only
