Outsound Festival John Shiurba will premiere his composition 9:9 at the 2012 Outsound Music Summit

9:9 is a suite of nine pieces written to be interpreted by nine players with a prompter/conductor. The score will utilize nine different types of notation all of which are somehow derived from the newspaper, so the piece acts as a celebration and/or elegy for the old-fashioned print medium. The notation types will vary from standard music notation to graphic, textual and pictorial notation, allowing the ensemble some creative input in the interpretation. The form of the suite will be open, allowing the conductor and the players to spontaneously shape the way the music develops in real time.
