Organized by Elastic Arts, Homeroom and Spudnik Press, this is the inaugural event for 10-by-10 2015, a collaboration of musicians and visual artists that will convene this year for four events over eight months. "With Elastic Arts Foundation as guest curator, the project highlights the genre of jazz and investigates how artists across media interpret improvisation," according to promotional materials. "The Graphic Notation lecture will include how 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." This event includes bassoonist Katherine Young and visual artist and musician Jordan Martins, who will "explore the history of some of these practices as well as underline the compositional and interpretive techniques as play."
