Notating Beauty That Moves: Music at an Exhibition

Josephine Ganter (Artist), Raymond MacDonald (Composer)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Presented by Hong Kong Sinfonietta and co-curated by Samson Young and Yang Yeung, this consists of an exhibition and a series of concerts that will take place in the same venue, Artistree, Cambridge House, Hong Kong. Two graphic scores Jo Ganter and Raymond MacDonald, Caissons 1 and Slant, will be part of this exhibition and performed by the HongKong Sinfonietta according to their directions.

The theme of the exhibition is musical notation. It includes work by historic and contemporary artists and composers. Slant and Caissons 1 will be played at the concert Gesturing Motion

An extract from the exhibition website:
“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.”
