[Athens Version II 2017] 
Graphic Score
Music in Motion Festival 2017, Trianon Theatre Athens, Version made by Katerina Giannouli and Dimitri Papavasiliou, 27/05/2017

Moving Sound (2016) is a graphic score consisting of 42 different parts. The score is to be performed by at least by two persons; one producing sound and one making movement. The actions noted with black ink are adressed to the person(s) producing sound; those noted with red ink are adressed to the person(s) making movement. Performers are invited to make a group realization of the composition using any amount of this material. The order of actions and their respective timings should be decided collectively prior to the performance. The resultant realization should be the product of a conversation between the performers and it should by no means be decided by one single person. In the case of a large group (more than 10 persons) the players should at first collectively decide the duration of their performance and then they should form subgroups. Each of these should decide for themselves upon the material to be played in the predetermined duration. It is not necessary for each sub-group to know prior to the performance what any other sub-group is going to play. 
The actions of Moving Sound may be combined in any manner (based on the performers’ choice), so that an action can continue while another starts, more than one action can be performed simultaneously etc. An action can be repeated by the same person(s) provided that one or more other actions are inserted between repetitions to avoid successive appearances of the same action. The order in which the actions are presented in this score reflects no structural preference on the part of the composer. The duration of the performance of the piece is indeterminate. Each page has a maximum duration of 3 minutes. Extreme displays and theatrics should be avoided. Each version should be agreed on for the specific performance taking into consideration the unique characteristics of each performance space. Performers making movement are strongly advised to consider the spacial information provided by the graphics regarding their relationship with the person(s) making sounds.

Performers: Vitoria Kotsalou and Vasiliki Chrisanthakopoulou

Air (2011) is a score consisting of 40 different verbally instructed parts. Performers (at least two persons) are invited to make a group realization of the composition using any amount of this material. The order of actions and their respective timings should be decided collectively prior to the performance. The resultant realization should be the product of a conversation between the performers and it should by no means be decided by one single person. In the case of a large group (more than 10 persons), the players should at first collectively decide the duration of their performance and then they should form subgroups. Each of these should decide for themselves upon the material to be played in the predetermined duration. It is not necessary for each sub-group to know prior to the performance what any other is going to play. 
The actions of Air may be combined in any manner (based on the performers’ choice), so that an action can continue while another starts, more than one action can be performed simultaneously etc. An action can be repeated by the same person provided that one or more other actions are inserted between repetitions to avoid successive appearances of the same action. The order in which the actions are presented in this score reflects no structural preference on the part of the composer. The duration of the performance is indeterminate but it should not be less than 5 minutes. 
The aim of Air is to observe movement as music, to “hear” movement itself. Consequently there should be no use of any kind of pre-recorded or live music during the performance. You are encouraged to perform your chosen action(s) as naturally as possible. Extreme displays and theatrics should be avoided at all costs. Each version should be agreed on for the specific performance taking into consideration the specific characteristics of each performance space.
