Graphic Score Workshop

The Graphic Score Workshop aims to build an environment where creativity and expression can flourish. Participants foster their own artistic agency to compose and perform their own completely new piece of music. Learning to recognize graphic score notational systems, or to devise their own, the Graphic Score Workshop encourages critical listening and builds self-expression through creative sound making.
