From Co-Opt Research & Projects:
“Post-Score is a group show of graphic and text scores curated by CO-OPt members Heather Warren-Crow and Andrew Weathers. The show collects contributions from over 30 artists across media, from music and performance art to poetry and painting. Artists created new event scores on index cards and sent them as mail art through the USPS. Included work ranges from text instructions in the tradition of Pauline Oliveros’s Sonic Meditations to mutated traditional musical notation to drawings and performance texts, showcasing the breadth of the form.
Contributing artists include: Sarah Ruth Alexander, Emmerich Anklam, Brandon Blair, Christie Blizard, Christina Carter, Jordan Dykstra, Kevin Corcoran, Catherine Czacki, Venetia Dale, Rachel Devorah, Cait Finley, Assaf Gidron, Luke Gullickson, Justin Houser, Gretchen Jude, Jessica Lambert, Cheryl E. Leonard, Emy Martin, Mira Martin-Gray, tanner menard, David Menestres, Esther Neff, Manuel Passôa de Lima, Sidney Pink, Mallory Prucha, Erik Schoster, Ryan Seward, Sivan Silver-Swarz, Matt Smiley, Teodora Stepančić, Cassia Streb, Maya Weeks, Audra Wolowiec, and Cody Yantis.
Post-Score opens on Monday January 16th at 4pm, with performances of contributed scores as well as classic graphic and text scores by Earle Brown and La Monte Young. CO-OPt will host a closing event on February 19th at 4pm that includes a performance by Llano Estacado Monad Band of the entirety of Cornelius Cardew’s graphic score Treatise.
