Composer Qasim Naqvi developed this graphic score and accompanying musical work for Chronology 20160424 / 41°-74°, a collaborative exhibition with the painter Pippo Lionni. Developed using a Moog Model D synthesizer, the five-part soundtrack to Chronology 20160424 / 41°-74° fluctuates in tone from placid and ethereal to violent and discordant. The graphic score uses a custom notational systems to log the synthesizer’s pitch and durational settings; a visual reflection of the composition’s range and dynamics.
