The Metaphysics of Notation

March 01, 2018, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

Hear members of the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony perform Mark Applebaum’s highly inventive and cryptic composition “The Metaphysics of Notation” inside the exhibition Mark Applebaum: Picturing Music. “The Metaphysics of Notation” is a pictographic score consisting of 70 linear feet of highly detailed, hand-drawn glyphs, two hanging mobiles of score fragments, and absolutely no written or verbal instructions. Nat Dickey (trombone), Timothy Nelson (viola), and Carlyn Hendler (flute) will perform the pictographic composition, while FM Ballet principal dancer Camille Federowich will interpret their performances through movement.

Join us for a unique evening exploring the avant-garde in art, music, and movement.
Free and open to the public.
