With Foliage, composer and conceptualist Elliott Sharp presents both the score to a graphic composition open for any orchestration and a visual work. As Sharp describes it: “The roots of this...

Each individual page is complete in itself, some more simple, others not so. One may also look at the pages as sequences and sub-sequences – when quickly scrolled, they become animations.

The result is a manifestation of an internal synesthesia that is the translation of thought, emotion, and process from one part of the spectrum to another. Includes a written Introduction by Sharp and a Forward by media artist Christian Marclay.< Less
