Description

About this piece:

Rhythm Grid began as an idea for a musical composition featuring only percussion and flute. The idea centered around creating written drum parts using a grid of 16 numbers and simple mathematical formulas. The panels are a direct visual interpretation of the rhythm pattern of the measures with overprinted symbols for the improvised instruments. The eight double-sided panels are hinged with an “L” shaped wire binding method that allows the panels to be read as a codex or arranged many ways.

 

Materials:

paper, ink, wire, CD
