Notations 15: Anderson and Chaplin

After a brief hiatus, here is the fifteenth 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 Casey Anderson and Clay Chaplin. All images used with permission, and copyright is retained by each image's respective creator.
