Scored Music

Zero Gravity Tea Ceremony
Graphic score for four double bass players, each also playing a nipple gong. Premiered by Shmil Frenkel, Gabby Meir, Nadav Masel and Yoav Beirach in Tel Aviv 2014.
In the score each square corresponds to a single player, who follows an imaginary ‘playhead’ scrubbing along the surface of the square. An arrow indicates the trajectory and bouncing off the inner ‘walls’ at a pace of one tick (indicated on the top and bottom of each square) per second. The material played by this imaginary playhead is indicated by a key to the right of each square.

Bidun Tarjamé
Graphic score for chamber ensemble with conduction, commissioned by Hafarot Seder Festival, Tel Aviv.
For this piece I built a small (~50cm) clock face with a single arm which the conductor can rotate manually. Performers follow the current ‘time’ indicated by this clock on each page, and the conductor can improvise and move the clock hand forwards and backwards with different speeds, like playing a tape backwards and forwards.

For five dancers, commissioned by Vistamarestudio in Milan, performed by Public Movement in 2018.
Based on a collection of marching choreographies of armies and guard-troops from around the world, I built a sequence of rhythmic patterns based on the dancers’ foot stomps (represented by black circles) in each of the different marches.
