Illuminations: A Codex

Kristina Wolfe (Composer)

Research output: Non-textual formComposition

Abstract

Illuminations Codex is a riddle of legibility within a musical context. Scores, as cultural documents that represent a past or future body of knowledge, are a form of communication. Scores or other ephemera can be readily understood or they may take ongoing review to decipher. Some may be completely opaque. Within this branch, there are works that can be decoded, and there are works where the code has been lost through time or destroyed. The codex has aspects of both. Scores with hundreds of ledger lines can be deciphered with a bit of counting, but music that was unintentionally rendered outside of the page might be lost forever or hidden in another version of the engraving script that has to be found
