Cornelius Cardew’s Treatise


These lovely graphics are actually a musical score by the British avant-garde figure Cornelius Cardew. Lovely sense of space and rhythm and it’s actually supposed to be a composition as well—to be interpreted by the player or ensemble.

Looks like these folk have done a lovely book of them as well (out of print, sadly):
