How does my drawing sound? Did I draw loudly or softly? Why does my print sound different in blue than in red?
The children of the “Druckstelle Basel” explored these and other questions together with the musicians of the Ensemble Phoenix Basel during an autumn holiday week. The children took on the role of composers and realized their sonic ideas in the form of graphic scores. Graphic notation plays an important role in contemporary music, because many sonic ideas cannot be conveyed through traditional notation. Using experimental printing techniques, the children investigated the relationship between notation and sound in a reciprocal process with the musicians of the EPhB.
The result of this exploration are several compositions, which will be interpreted by the EPhB.
