To the tune of George Brecht, who said, “music isn’t just what you hear or what you listen to, but everything that happens,” artist Chris Kallmyer introduces score-making as a methodology for writing prompts that focus intention, expand creative practice across disciplines, and invite presence and focus to everyday actions and objects.

This March we’re inquiring within as three artists tell us fortunes for an unknown future.
