Cathy Milliken / Jon Rose – Rock / Paper / Scissors (2023)
Workshop / Performance – Illuminating a collaborative score –

Rock / Paper/ Scissors exists as composed segments of improvisational musical and textual propositions to be performed by a conductor and musicians. It will therefore necessarily be a differently structured composition each performance. Here in its workshopped premiere, Rock / Paper / Scissors delves into the negotiation involved in communicating and interpreting a simultaneous open and closed score. The composition itself is an exploration of the joy of immediacy in structured improvisation and collective harmonising of musical ideas. Inspired by Jon Rose’ extraordinary musical legacy of composition exploration, performance and innovation, Jon and composer Cathy Milliken collaborate to present their new work Rock / Paper / Scissors together with their esteemed colleagues from Ensemble KNM Berlin.
