Inspired by Cage's 1969 book, Notations 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 (Tuesday this week...) we'll showcase notation by two different composers, primarily focusing on those local to Los Angeles. This week's composers are Weba Garretson and Nick Norton.

When musician Weba Garretson arrived in Los Angeles in 1979 she was a young girl of twenty-three standing on the brink of what’s proven to be a fascinating career. Garretson is a classically trained singer but she has a wild streak, and her music has moved in daring directions. From punk rock, to Kurt Weill, to performance art, and avant garde jazz, she’s able to bend her talents in any and all directions.
