Graphic Score Hilton

Anyone who has followed my work for a while may remember that I have collaborated on occasion in cross-discipline projects bringing music and visuals together. Fifteen Images was the first of these projects in 2010, which resulted in a kind of graphic score based on colours and textures from a garden, which the performer could use for improvisation (along with defined ‘tonalities’ and a conventional score). This week sees the first performance of a group of works called Fresh Yorkshire Aires. Four different composers/artists have produced graphic scores to be performed by piano duet.

Mapping Yorkshire, with composer Nigel Morgan, takes photographs from four locations in Yorkshire as starting points for our four scores. You can find out more about the scores we produced here. All the Fresh Yorkshire Aires scores are on show in Leeds 14-17th June and the first performance is on Thursday 16th June in the gallery. Later in the month the scores and performance will be in Sheffield. Information and tickets to the performances are available at Fresh Yorkshire Aires.

  1. Always remember a wonderful interlude in a workshop with Ruth Lee where a piece of music was played which we listened to and then listened again with coloured pencils and paper at hand. Results incredibly diverse but had intervals of similarity. Thank you Ruth and thank you Alice for reminding me

  2. A great piece of serendipity British Tapestry Group have put out a call for a project in 2018…Sound and Weave. How’s that for timing
