Liz K Miller’s Alternative Notation System maps music as circular rather than linear graphic score. These images create a new way of visualizing and interpreting music. If a motif within the music repeats, the score must form a new concentric circle, thus mapping out a diagram that appears to have grown organically. This work considers how repetitive patterns are seductive to human beings, who thrive on cyclical, repetitive behavior. Organic sequences, found in nature, are applied to the context of music to examine the draw of cycles and repetition, two compelling and innate influences on the human psyche.
