Get a free lecturing to from Jordan Martins and Katherine Young from Spudnik Press Cooperative, then listen and see what the 10 x 10 2015 collective of musicians and artists is whipping up so far. "Since the early 20th century, artists have found inspiration in the pure abstraction of instrumental music," according to a statement from the organization. "There has been a rich history of synaesthetic approaches to relating color to timbre and tonality in both scientific and highly subjective ways. More recently, music notation incorporating graphic elements outside of the traditional staff have served as a way to travel the territory between improvisation, chance operations and non-traditional composition, while negotiating the balance between the interpretive power of the performer and the single-sourced autonomy of the composer." Featured are composer/bassoonist Katherine Young and visual and musical artist Jordan Martins. The Graphic Notation 101 series will continue with three more shows later this year, as ensemble members continue to collaborate and develop their individual contributions to the collective. All ages are welcome. For more information about 10 x 10, visit www.tenxtenchicago.com.
