This project explores an alternative approach to notating music other than classical music notation. Through the construction of theanalogy of a semi-circular grid, the artist has uncovered a visual demonstrative of the orchestra that synthesises both concept and subject. By using English Scientific Pitch notation whereby letters and numbers identify the note name and pitch octave (i.e. the register of the note) combined with subtle changes in a family of a typeface for length of notes, this score can be used by any competent musician once they have read the instructions.
