Cogs

cyclical graphic scores  

Cogs 3-4

These cyclical scores focus on players’ negotiations of rhythmic relationships during improvisation, or in graphically-framed compositions. This strategy incites players to push and pull the speed of their motion around the scores, in which the graphics can be imagined as malleable; duration is relative to the speed of motion negotiated by players during performance. A  change in the speed of one part requires the rest of the group to reconfigure their actions to realign the graphic layout, encouraging playful back-and-forth rhythmic interaction.

Cogs 1-2

Cogs can be used for any instrumental combination, and have been used as a springboard for improvisations, as well as being incorporated into compositions such as Fractured Moulds, Scattered Signals and Clutch
