a generative score

Quarantine Workout, Standards 2020
research action

Quarantine Workout is a series of unreleased instructions conceived by artists and musicians, and developed during the pandemic by Standards collective, Milan.

‘A generative score’ is an attempt to imagine how to multiply the effects of a score, and to imagine what happen if the receiver’s response would be generative. In other words, it reflects on how can a score trigger a direct exchange between who writes and who performs it. These possibilities pave the way for new experiments whose target does not deal with increasing relations’ virtuality, rather with collecting signs as to overturn the unidirectionality of a score.
