Notations 2: Catron and Valitutto

Here is the second installment of Notations! Inspired by Cage's 1969 bookNotations is a collection of graphic scores, hand drawn music calligraphy, computer code, compositional sketches, text scores, and other innovative forms of musical notation.

Every Monday we'll showcase notation by two different composers, primarily focusing on those local to Los Angeles. This week's composers are Jessica Catron and Richard Valitutto.

On the right side of the page there is now a link to a Notations page that shows all of the scores posted thus far. All images used with permission, and copyright is retained by each image's respective creator. Click on the images to see a larger view.
