The “Graphic Score” series is a continually growing body of works that feature simple statements or ambiguous symbols on a single sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ printer paper. These works are written spontaneously and their instrumentation and performance practices are often left indeterminate.
The score is shown right.
At their premieres, Graphic Scores #6-14 were performed simultaneously.
Interestingly, Graphic Score #10 was premiered alongside performances of other Graphic Scores by placing the score on a stand. This does not constitute a performance of the piece, as the score simply existed within the performance space, without a performer attached to it. Therefore, the piece was premiered, but not performed.
