The exhibition »All_Go_Rhythm___this is A FREE CONCERT« at A-Musik Record Store will show musical diagrams, conceptual scripts, manifestos, performance notes and anti-/scores by contemporary musicians*. Carriers of these sonic movements of thought or instructions for action are poster.
This research exhibition outlines the elusive musical realm, which also includes attitude markings on instruments for live concerts or studio use. In this respect, the exhibition shows a diagrammatic extension of the analog "word scores" developed by John Cage, among others, to contemporary digital instrument or machine displays, for which handwritten entries are often of great importance.
In music, composing is also called »writing.« The form of artistic writing relevant here to conceptual sound and art was shaped by John Cage's experimental composition courses at the New School for Social Research in New York from 1956 to 1960, in which artists* such as Yoko Ono, George Brecht, Allan Kaprow, Nam June Paik, La Monte Young, Robert Morris, and Carl Andre participated or were directly influenced. One of the most striking examples is La Monte Young's Composition 1960 # 10, which he dedicated to Robert Morris: »Draw a straight line and follow it.«
