Foliage By Elliott Sharp
eBook (ePub): $9.99
Download immediately.
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... More > project lie in my desire to depict the musical processes at play in my Inner Ear and to use them as performance strategies for their realization by any musician.” But Foliage is a piece of retinal art as much as it is an instruction set for sound: form and function interlocked. 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. All have been created through multiple layers of processing. 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
Unlocking the Fretboard & The Art of Fingering By Harry George Pellegrin
Paperback: $9.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
Even if the guitarist knows what notes must be played and where to find them on the fingerboard, there remains what fingering works well for each passage—but will this fingering allow the... More > player to move with accurate efficiency? The fret board does have an easily recognizable arrangement of half steps and once that truly is understood, the fret board becomes almost as graphically representative as the piano keyboard. This text focuses on this underlying principle and develops it into a system encompassing the horizontal as well as vertical methods of learning the fingerboard and how these two conceptual disciplines are interrelated. The diligent student finds insight into why editors and performers have varying opinions regarding the fingering of identical pieces. Opinions-and fingerings-are not engraved in stone. Some editors finger music to ease performance, some for tone considerations. In some cases there may be only one way to finger a passage due other considerations—a plethora of reasons.< Less
