Three years ago I began a project of study to go over the history of musical notation, with an emphasis on graphic scores related to improvisation. Throughout the process I kept coming across Cornelius Cardew’s Treatise, along with his writing on the score. Two aspects of his work fascinated me; the elegance of the design, and issues pertaining to its performability, especially if considering the realization of a stand alone solo performance. I decided during the course of my research to design an electronic set up that would enable me to mount a solo performance of the score. With the help of an array of 26 loopers and processing pedals, I have come to the point where I am able to accomplish just that!
The work was recently premiered in this version in the fall of 2018 at the University of Guelph (IISCI), followed by performances in Kitchener (NUMUS), Toronto Montreal and Vancouver. Upcoming performances are in the works in Vancouver and abroad. For Bookings
