the fuck is this

it’s graphic notation.you can play the chimes in whichever way you interpret the lines.for example, you could see it as high points being forte dynamics, and low points being piano dynamics.but in this case, it looks like the composer just wants you to sustain the sound of the chimes after hitting an accent with them.it looks weird, yeah, but thankfully you don’t have to overthink this.

Nah, I don’t think that’s right

really? this one from 1975 for a percussionist must be totally wrong too!


or how about something a little newer than that? like, 1985? does body drumming sound interesting? fuck yeah it does! I’ll even throw in the instructions for how to read this! it’s totally wrong (and in French!), but…



we’ve been so wrong since the 1950’s, it’s absolutely crazy to think that composers like this guy was wrong:



…as well as this Stockhausen fella:


or even this guy:


"but it’s 2014! no one writes like that anymore!"


um.
