On Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. Vancouver’s Ethos Collective returns to Open Space for a concert of music primarily notated as graphic scores. In conjunction with the exhibition Concrete Scores, the works performed will often look more like drawings than traditional musical notation. This concert will include Canadian composers who have been exploring this form of notation as well as improvisations by the Ethos Collective.
Concrete Scores is an exhibit exploring the interactions between media. This concert will include a reading of the visual art as a musical score.

Opening: Friday, January 17, at 7:00 p.m
Open for listening: During regular gallery hours
Curator: Paul Walde
Not All There Project Description
Not All There is a series of sound art works presented in succession over a six-month period from January until July 2014. These works all deal with music (obliquely or directly) and absence (as a device or concept). The title is a reference to this absence but also to sound’s non-materiality, while also being a play on the perception of cognitive dysfunction in oneself or others. Many of the works investigate ideas of what “there” might be and what it means to be both “there” and “not all there.”
