as the Text Objects, the Audiographic Score Objects are artworks that in my oeuvre have a double status. They operate as singular works and as works as part of a larger series. Starting with casette tapes in the 1970s, the media of Audiographic Score Objects changed over the years, including media such as CDs, Mini Discs and Vynil Dubplates. As media, the Audiographic Score Objects have been integrated by me in installation as well as performance works.
In contrast to the Text Objects, the Audiographic Score Objects are indexed by date or location. For example the first Audiographic Score Objects of The Musical Act is labelled under the title 170210 Fond 19:25. As part of the larger project The Musical Act, Audiographic Score Objects – as does The Arbeitende Konzert/ The Working Concert – thematizes playing as image, music as discourse, score as frame and concert as exhibition. In contrast to the Text Objects, the Audiographic Score Objects do refer to the enlargening of notation or writing to other media than that of the text. What is important about the mediality of the Text Objects and Audiographic Score Objects is that they are single originals in a medium that conventionally is reproduced in many copies. By this is meant, that of the Text Objects and Audiographic Score Objects only one copy exists. I therefore also call them singular multiples. To be continued.
