Part reference, part exercise manual, To Note: Notation Across Disciplines is a collection of material that both informs and challenges our understanding of notation and how it exists both historically and currently within and across various fields and disciplines.
Notation is part of our everyday. It is an act that records an observation for future reference. From a handwritten note, an electronic reminder or a quick sketch to a highlighted passage of text or post-it note, notation assumes many casual forms. In December 2015, notation became the focal point of a workshop presented at RMIT Design Hub, Melbourne entitled To Note: Notation Across Disciplines, which involved 25 practitioners working in and across the disciplines of sound, dance, visual art and design/architecture. See the culmination of this workshop in this new publication by Perimeter Editions.
