Abstract

My practice-based research has led to a rethinking of the relationships between composer, performer and listener in my own creative work through an interpretation of a diagram by experimental composer George Brecht. Through the reconfiguration of this diagram I have developed a framework in which the act of composition can be performed via the activities of ‘reading’, ‘performance’ and ‘playing’, with the focus on an expanded notion of traditional score-reading that makes the act of reading manifest onstage as part of the physical theatricality of musical performance. This approach can be used as a site for further experimentation by other interdisciplinary creative practitioners.
