The Graphic Series are an ongoing set of color graphic scores for creative musicians.  Designed for solos, duos, trios, quartets and larger forces, instrumentation is open and various combinations are encouraged to suit groups of musicians who enjoy performing together. 


Two or more of these scores can be performed simultaneously by different instrumental groups. They can also be performed in tandem to the Piano Preludes.


Duo and Trio scores can be performed as indicated (for duos or trios) or can also be performed on a single instrument by mapping the two or three different lines to different textures or techniques of the instrument. 


This technique was first developed with Vasko Dukovski for Sarang Ga for solo Bass Clarinet.  In this piece, each of the three colors mapped onto a different technique of the bass clarinet (mouthpiece noise, fundamental pitches, upper register openings). 


The Graphic Series were first workshopped with Neither/Nor Ensemble in December 2018 and January 2019 and two of them, #2 Blue-Red (performed by string trio) and #3 Green-Organge-Pink (performed by vocal trio) were premiered February 5, 2019 by Neither/Nor at Berklee, Boston


They have since been written for and premiered by ensembles and soloists including String Noise, Either/OR, Mariel Roberts, Gamin, Nadav Lev, Vasko Dukovski, Neither/Nor, Lauren Cauley and others.


Scores are not available digitally.
