Nine designers were invited to create musical scores using a set of scanned images of Letratone dry-transfer pattern sheets, provided by the organizers. The scores would be distributed to the participating musicians, who would interpret and perform them at the festival.
As with typical musical scores, modularity and repetition are a central feature of Letratone, and we decided to work against it. We zoomed in on the images to locate accidental marks that cannot be repeated, such as irregular impressions, scratches, and specks of dust captured by the scanners. After identifying and isolating 32 marks, we divided them into eight groups, to create eight composite images. The scores were performed by Dieter Kovačič, a.k.a. Dieb13.
