Julius Eastman music scores


These scores represent the use of graphic notation innovated by experimental composers of the 20th century such as Eastman and John Cage among others. They demonstrate a striving for graphic language to represent musical thought in the same way that typography represents written thought.

Julius Eastman (October 27, 1940 – May 28, 1990) was an American composer, pianist, vocalist, and dancer whose work is associated with musical minimalism. He was among the first composers to combine minimalist processes with elements of pop music, and involve experimental methods of extending and modifying music in creating what he called "organic music".[1] He often gave his pieces titles with provocative political intent, such as Evil N… and Gay Guerrilla, and has been acclaimed following new performances and reissues of his music.  —Wikipedia
