Musical notation marks the unique contribution of music to the gestural humanity of the universe. Hidden beneath abstract signs that dot a score is a world of beauty that may be universally accessed. Musical notation is also a system of codes as ideologies. It includes and excludes, sets boundaries, and makes judgements.
Notating Beauty that Moves presents musical scores in the classical and contemporary hands of composers from the past and present. They are placed among works-on-paper, drawings, moving images, texts, photography, paintings, by artists who may or may not have been trained in music. In juxtaposing them alongside each other, we propose that in each work there are many moves to follow and follow through. One might even say, we owe art and life to motion.
A series of concerts, featuring members of the Hong Kong Sinfonietta and the acclaimed Australian group Ensemble Offspring, will put a spotlight on the process through which musical signs are translated into physical motions.
