Carole P. Kunstadt, Interlude No. 4, 2015, silk thread, bone bead, oak gall ink on paper: music manuscript dated 1809, 7.5 x 7.5 in.

 

Hand written music manuscripts from the nineteenth century, drawn with oak gall ink on handmade paper, are cut and recombined. The deliberate notations and linear guides are divorced from their intended musical equivalent and present a cacophony of lines, notes and marks. Threads are repetitively knotted into the woven surface of fragmented notations and lyrics creating a densely textured surface.

Through the exploration and manipulation of the materials - resulting in alternative rhythmic patterning, the process reveals how musical notation can become visual through re-interpretation.

History, memory and time merge in a hybrid form.
