About this image
Quoting Eineidi: "The alphabet system uses the alphabet to designate the notes. The direction is visual up or down. No rhythm is given but done aurally. As opposed to a ‘song’ with a long melody, harmony etc. that is memorized and repeated over and over in some type of song form, the new music was more about the ‘devouring of grid’. Small cells of notes, maybe just a few would be played and extrapolated upon before moving to the next group. The cell is the seed, the kernel, the Grundgestalt, upon which one can imply many things to expand from".
