We were recently commissioned by Decibel New Music Ensemble to create a graphic score as part of their ongoing Talking Board Project. Decibel will be playing the piece - titled Transect - this weekend as part of Extended Play at the City Recital Hall in Sydney.

The Talking Board Project is based on an innovative, non-linear approach to to reading graphic scores within the Decibel ScorePlayer.

Transect, our piece, poses questions about what is here and what has been taken away. Through a series of mappings, we have considered ideas of landscape, home and our perception of the Swan Coastal Plain and how these layers interact with traditional cartographic representation.

Big thanks to Decibel and the Difficult Commission Project for this chance to sink our teeth into the world of graphic scores!
