Netgraph is a real-time graphic score work for improvisors. The piece consists of a series of scenes around specific mobile graphic constructions and is designed for network performance.
The notation reflects structures and interactions between three players and suggests gestural interpretation to both musicians and audiences.
The piece uses the real-time graphics rendering engine PlaySpace developed by Rob King and Pedro Rebelo in the context of the Comedia European Project.
Stills from Netgraph’s live score. This work implements concepts of distributed notation covered in Rebelo, Pedro (2010) “Notating the Unpredictable” Contemporary Music Review 29, no. 1 (2010): 17 – 27
