Festival of All Things Arts

Robin Lough

Robin Lough is an artist from Smithers, BC. She attends Emily Carr University in Vancouver. Robin works with artists and musicians in cross disciplinary collaborations, exploring and expanding ideas of the graphic score through visual art, installation and electronics.

Join interdisciplinary artist Robin Lough and musician Carla Rose Chisholm from Vancouver BC for a creative exploration into the world of graphic scores. Graphic scores gained popularity in the 1950s, and expanded horizons in experimental composition for music and dance. Through a series of two workshops we will gather, discuss what a graphic score is, how to play them, and create our own scores with inspiration from our surroundings and the landscape.  Come and play with colours, line and shapes, and transform them into sound! The workshops will end with a short performance of the scores made at the workshop. This workshop is suitable for all levels of musicians and artists, including those with no musical training. Together we will work to create some musical art!

Check out her workshop on Graphic Scores this year at ArtsWells.
