A0–C8: The Elements of Melody

Abstract or Summary of Project

A0–C8: The Elements of Melody is a survey of theoretical instruction, notational systems, historical facts—all concerned with reorganising and visualising ‘melody’ from the author’s perspective; a proposition in the never-ending discussion of “What is music?” Arranged in three chapters, like a music concerto, every page is a meticulous demonstration of space, layer, rhythm, hierarchy, scale, contrast and balance – much like a musical piece. Each spread expounds on a single element of melody, building on the other to form a beautifully complex narrative that is carefully designed and packaged in a hand crafted book.
