Visual Scores


Respect (Bukit Brown Cemetery I)

I’ve been creating visual scores to my music for a number of years, as an aide to my compositional process. This experimentation with sound visualisation helps me to evolve the relationship between forms with greater ease and understand sonic structures with more clarity.

Score for Unform (draft)

In my recent works, I’ve decided to show my scores alongside my compositions. In Respect (Bukit Brown I), pictured top, I presented the score (background) with a dubplate (foreground) of my soundscape composition. Similarly, in Exploit (Bukit Brown II), on the sound design page, my collaborator Simon Ball and I created an animated visual-score to accompany a digitally transformed soundscape.

Score for 8 Hooves
