Moving Scores is a multi-media show that features new films, screened and performed as 'graphic scores' by a vibrant ensemble of professional musicians. The films put experimental music notation in motion - turning the map into a GPS.

3 Shades Black performs for the Auckland Fringe Festival after enthusiastically received performances at the Melbourne Fringe and in Shanghai. Members of the Melbourne-based experimental ensemble will be joining with their New Zealand orchestral musician counterparts to present new works by local and trans-tasman composers and visual artists.

Artistic Director Miranda Hill speaks about the Moving Scores project: "My interests have always veered towards the experimental and fun and I enjoy the new set of challenges that arise when you mix artistic genres with a sense of humour and levity. 3 Shades Black is dedicated to making experimental music and performance accessible and transparent to audiences. Taking high-falutin’ artsy concepts and framing them so everyone can appreciate how awesome they are. Not such a big ask, surely."

John Cage said that ‘music is all around us’ and this project takes that a whole step further. Interactive mathematical equations, Clouds, Aquariums, and the inorganic rubbish collection are all images we know in one context, and would be given a whole new outlook by being read as a score. Visual artists, composers and performers have different concepts of “structure”, and the juxtaposition of the art forms will lead to some unexpected interpretations. While the musical approach to each piece is discussed and rehearsed by the ensemble, the re is always room for interpretation, and no two performances are the same.
