Archive for the “Scores” Category

The clock is ticking and things are pretty tense here in the old control room.  The fate of the Republic hangs in the balance.  I refer, of course, not just to next week’s election which is only the most important one we’ve had in the past 250 years but to tonight’s showdown between number 3 West Virginia (yea) and number 5 Louisville (boo).  May rightousness (my team) prevail in both encounters.

With that in mind, it seems like a good day to talk about graphic scores.  What are they?  Who does them?  And, most importantly, why?  Start here with Roger Bourland’s post about George Crumb, which is accompanied by a score that looks like a seating plan of Giants Statium laid out for a Stones concert.
