Go look up Mark Applebaum's "The Metaphysics of Notation". This is not a visual art piece, but a graphic score meant to be interpreted by a performer. Not kidding.
"Graphic Scores" always intrigued me. Made famous by Earle Brown, I found it interesting that the visual elements of graphic scores had little to do with traditions of the classical cannon. In this work, I explore the textures that I identify with a classical piece of music, allowing for different colors, objects, and bleeding of one into the next.
