Martin Rosen - Untitled
The only instruction on this untitled graphic score reads:
Whatever sound(s) you choose, make sure the sound(s) you don’t are just as important.
Immeadiately (I hope) this reveals some unwritten intention in the score: that in its performance, there should be a focus on not only making sound, but a focus on the gaps around it.
The recorded acousmatic realization is my own. I wanted to reveal how subtly this instruction could be taken - the space where no sound is made is often fleeting, and masked by other voices or reverb.
Martin Rosen is an American composer and artist, currently travelling Europe.
