Sometimes, traditional music notation cannot represent important aspects of the music made with innovative use of technology. We can instead represent some of these aspects with a 'graphic score'. Here, students use colors and shapes to represent various materials and musical parameters, showing their relationship in time and revealing how larger musical structures are put together.
