How do you play a picture? Composers and artists from John Cage to Brian Eno have experimented with notation to create extraordinary visual scores that rival the best contemporary art.

This transatlantic programme spans classical, experimental and jazz, in works featuring graphic art, comic strip and abstract art. Innovative pianist Joanna MacGregor is at the heart of a super group of the UKs most original musicians who perform music by George Crumb, Cathy Berberian, Fred Frith, John Cage, Wadada Leo Smith, Cornelius Cardew, Tom Phillips RA and Jennifer Walshe against the striking visual backdrop of their projected scores.
