Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the approach and techniques used to represent the music notation of two works by Cat Hope for percussionist Louise Devenish: Sub Aerial (2015) and The Past Is Singing In Our Teeth (2017). Both works use a unique iteration of the Decibel ScorePlayer iPad Application which offers the facility to randomly determine the order in which a series of slides are presented to the performer. The graphic notation on each slide displays shapes representing non-rhythmic gestures to be drawn on the surface of the instruments using a variety of implements by the performer. An overview of the application as developed for the notation in these works and the graphic design principles with which it complies will be followed by a summary of performance implications as experienced in preparation of their performances that influenced the development of the notation and performance practices.
