Radically Disruptive Compositional Tools: Graphetics, Case Syncretisms and Prototype Theory

"Delinquent Spirit of A Drowned City" for Piano
World Premiere, Paris France.  Palais de Tokyo.  Nicolas Horvath Piano.
There will be a new series of upcoming posts discussing alternative and experimental compositional methodologies, disruptive tablature design, WET scores, numerics and interdisciplinary construction tools for the documentation of musical events.


"EV 30"  Experimental Ideation in Visio-Graphetic Tablatures (Felicity Conditions/Finite State Markov Process Control and Case Syncretism)

Here we look at Part 1 of "Graphetics and Symbology" and their role in providing instruction for the vocal and the instrumental practitioner.

Experimental Tablatures Utilizing Relevance Theory and Reflexification
Grapheticists are practitioners of Graphetics which is a branch of linguistics concerned with the analysis of the physical properties of shapes used in writing. It is an etic study, meaning that it has an outsider's perspective and is not concerned with any particular writing system. It is contrasted with the related emic field of graphemics, the study of the relation between different shapes in particular writing systems.  Graphetics is analogous to phonetics; graphetics is to the study of writing as phonetics is to the study of spoken language.

As such, it can be divided into two areas, visual graphetics and mechanical graphetics, which are analogous to auditory and articulatory phonetics, respectively. Both printed and handwritten language can be the subject of graphetic study.

As such, it can be divided into two areas, visual graphetics and mechanical graphetics, which are analogous to auditory and articulatory phonetics, respectively. Both printed and handwritten language can be the subject of graphetic study."
