Workshop 3 – ‘Interpreting a Graphic Score’

2016-01-08 22.08.34

In workshop 3 of my PG Certificate Project, I introduced Community Music 1 students to this graphic score as a source of inspiration for musical interpretation.

PG Cert Project Lesson Plan 3

I created this graphic score from an idea shared by Sofia Lopez-Ibor in her wonderful book Blue is the Sea (Pentatonic Press Integrated Learning Series, 2011)

I am fascinated by the creative musical process at play as we begin to interpret a graphic score within a group music making context. I have been working with graphic scores over the last few years in various ways. This photograph was taken during a music workshop with local children on the Isle of Mull in July 2014.
