Murmuration is a “live structure composition” for two improvisers who each interpret the other’s music in a live setting using a custom software tool called Ocular Scores™. Two visual interpretations are projected for the performers and the audience to see. The images are created in real-time from the analysis of their live performance. The composer controls the structure of the work by manipulating with the help of presets, the graphic notation system which unfolds as a collaborative improvisation and a committed interpretation of musical code

The Live Structures Project is made possible through an “Explore and Create” grant from the Canada Council for the Arts. Ocular Scores™ is created in collaboration with designer Joseph Browne.
