metabach encapsulate (2011)
metabach encapsulate is an audio-visual work that utilizes a computer program that performs different process-based operations onto written scores and their complementary sound recordings.
These graphic renderings depict a non-linear process whereby the pixel width of each page in the score is arranged side-by-side along with the other pages in the score. Upon each iteration, the width of each score "snippet" is widened at a rate that doubles each time (2^n).
The subtle variations of the individual scores' parameters--alignment, margins, notehead, articulation markings, fonts--unwind to reveal iterative textures. Ultimately these renderings depict the repetitive deconstructions of the scores' notational elements, forming a visual representation of the notations as they emerge from the score.
