Issues of new notation in "The Flowing"
by Lee, Jonghoon, M.M., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 72; 1527721
Abstract (Summary)

This study explores the idea of creating new sound and its relation to nontraditional notation used in the piece The Flowing for solo violin and ensemble. This paper explains the compositional progress of the piece and shows how the composer indicates the instructions to the performers on how to interpret the new notation. Scores of George Crumb, John Cage, and Earle Brown will be briefly compared with The Flowing as examples of other composers’ new notation. The focus of The Flowing and this paper is to reach for more possibilities of creating new notation types and scoring systems with the intention of creating new music that can accurately transmit the ideas of the composer.
