"An Issue Of Fair Water" for Harp: A colossal odyssey spread across 7505 pages, challenging the very essence of traditional harp composition and performance.

"An Issue Of Fair Water" is vast.

Comprising 7505 pages, this score explores a new musical landscape comprised of a singular alternative notational archetype. This compositional ontology is based on a singular system inspired by Damien Hirst's 'Circles' and 'Dots' work which defines the basis for an endless exploration of form.

Each page uses the grid-formula to explore various sequential dot system combinations; each series of notational elements a unique in its placement. Despite the way in which this appears to be formulaic, the spot arrangement and sequence retain a sense of expressiveness in their choice of placement that is informed by intuitive logic.

The dots are uniform in size, but the placement follows no discernible pattern, creating a visual field that is simultaneously ordered and chaotic. This juxtaposition of the methodical and the random, the structured and the haphazard, mirrors the underlying philosophy of this notational system..

The sheer volume of this work speaks to its complexity and depth, inviting harpists into a world where each page turn reveals new surprises and challenges.

It’s a piece that doesn’t just demand technical proficiency but a deep, intuitive understanding of music as a form of expression and art. You can access the complete score of "An Issue Of Fair Water" for Harp through the link provided above.

This score is not just for harpists but for anyone interested in the evolution of musical composition and the endless possibilities of sound.
