Scores are a form of organizing ideas, of communicating instructions, of archiving pieces and processes. This workshop will look at different ways that artists from different disciplines have utilized scores to create compositions, installations, and performances using isolated parts of the body, objects, movement, and text.

This course is part discussion based and part practical. Each session will introduce different kinds of scores (notational, graphic, text, audio, video). Participants will do exercises, perform, analyze, and discuss existing scores before making their own. Participants will have the opportunity to test their ideas and get feedback from each other and from guest artists.

No previous experience in performance, composition, choreography or any form of score making is required. It is preferable that participants are not musicians.
