In January 2008, to mark the fortieth anniversary of John Cage’s seminal publication Notations (Something Else Press, 1968-9), me and composer Neil Luck presented a range of investigations into what notation is - and could be. Notations 2008, at the Slade Research Centre, presented performances by leading contemporary musicians including Mikhail Karikis, Anton Lukoszevieze, Sankorfa and members of Apartment House.

These performers worked in collaboration with visual artists to produce new graphic scores, sonic artworks and installations. Artists included Cornelia Parker, Ed Atkins, Jayne Parker, Dryden Goodwin and Simon Morris.
