This publication documents the exhibition ‘All Go Rhythm – This is a Free Concert’, which took place at Galerie Oqbo in Berlin between 24 September and 30 October 2021, and which continues at a-Musik record store, Kleiner Griechenmarkt 28-30, 50676 Köln between 5 May and 31 July 2022.
The project presents musical diagrams, conceptual scripts, manifestos, performance notes and anti-scores by many contemporary musicians.
It also shows sonic movements of thought and instructions for action on computer screens, manuscripts, vinyl record covers, physical objects, videos and technical inventions, markings on instruments for live concerts or studio use, and contemporary digital instruments and machine displays, for which handwritten entries are often of great importance.
In many respects, the exhibition and book aim for its audience to witness a diagrammatic extension of analogue ‘word scores’, such as those developed by John Cage.
