Composer, performer and band leader Anton Lukoszevieze shares a series of graphic scores, each of which takes its title from a Lithuanian place name

Anton Lukoszevieze is a cellist and leader of Apartment House, the UK based contemporary music ensemble he founded in 1995.

Although a graduate of the Royal College of Music, his work also incorporates painting, photography and film. The scores on display in this gallery mark the intersection between his audio and visual work. They also nod to his Lithuanian heritage.

“These scores were made in July 2017,” reveals Lukoszevieze. “They function as scores that could be performed or as aesthetic objects. There are no instructions as to how they could be performed, but certain graphic elements contained within the scores could be of service to an interpreter. There are many possibilities. The source materials were taken from two Russian books published in the 1950s that I found on a remaindered bookshelf in Vilnius, Lithuania.”

You can read Anton Lukoszevieze's Invisible Jukebox in The Wire issue 402. Subscribers can access the interview via the online archive.
