Drawn from music: Art exhibition opens window into composers’ creative process (UChicago News)

UChicago News: Drawn from music: Art exhibition opens window into composers’ creative process. “For composers, drawing a ‘map’ of music can give shape to a new work and articulate its overarching ideas. As evocations of the composer’s intentions—from sweeping curves to stars, birds and brightly-colored dots—such maps capture the ebbs and flows within a musical piece and complement musical scores, serving as guides for performers. MAPS OF FORM, a new exhibition at the University of Chicago’s Logan Center for the Arts, presents a collection of these musical illustrations as works of art in their own right.”
