'Directions' (Composition, Score & Design) by Will Parker & Rob Lowe

'Directions' is an indeterminate graphic score generator. Comprised of 26 (A­-Z) square cards with four possible orientations. Time is the only set parameter, the others are abstract - have no traditional musical references or fixed figurative meaning.

Designed as a type of Rorschach test where performers will add their own dimensions, axis and reference points. The form and material must be shaped and negotiated in the moment; complex interactions guided by the Gestalt principals of: proximity, similarity, symmetry, continuation and closure.
