Second Graphème Edition Released

Promising “new ways to present and talk about organized sound, and creative solutions to artistic questions and endeavours,” The smallest functional unit collective has released the second edition of its publication of experimental and graphic music scores, Graphème.

The Berlin collective includes Ute Wassermann, Tony Buck, Mazen Kerbaj, Magda Mayas and Racha Gharbieh.

Twelve compositions are featured. This second edition includes work by Christine Abdelnour, Burkhard Beins, Rhodri Davies, Clara De Asís, Emilio Gordoa, Tomás Gubbins, Hanna Hartman, Bonnie Jones, Anna Pangalou, Gino Robair, Montenegrofisher, Raymond MacDonald and Jo Ganter.

“The twelve pieces explore notions of the score as a result of interdisciplinary collaboration, architectural systems as inspiration, instrument building as composition, printing and materiality as sources for interpretation and performative practice, as well as investigations of personal vocabulary and shared histories,” according to the release notes. “Many of the scores in this edition are graphically beautiful and intriguing, and hold their own as works of visual art.”
