Post image for WILL PARKER & JOHN MACEDO – ‘DIRECTIONS’ – ON BANDCAMP

In 2013 Will Parker and I did a live studio recording of Will’s composition/indeterminate graphic score generator ‘Directions’. The recordings have been hanging around for a while so I thought I’d make them available on Bandcamp. You can download them (name your price) here.
The download includes PDFs of the ‘Directions’ score (score cards, decoder and picker) and ‘Directions’ booklet with info and notes about the composition/score.

More info about the release:

Will Parker & John Macedo‘Directions’

Live studio recording of ‘Directions’ by Will Parker & Rob Lowe. Performed by Will Parker & John Macedo.

Recorded & mixed by Will Parker at EMS Goldsmiths College, London, July 2013.

Will Parker – Prepared mandolin, computer, transducers, cymbals & singing Bowl

John Macedo – Modular synthesizer, test oscillators, contact mic, surfaces & objects

‘Directions’ (Composition, Score & Design) by Will Parker & Rob Lowe

‘Directions’ is an indeterminate graphic score generator. Comprised of 26 (A­-Z) square cards with four possible orientations. Time is the only set parameter, the others are abstract – have no traditional musical references or fixed figurative meaning.

Designed as a type of Rorschach test where performers will add their own dimensions, axis and reference points. The form and material must be shaped and negotiated in the moment; complex interactions guided by the Gestalt principals of: proximity, similarity, symmetry, continuation and closure.
