SONICFOLIO was a collection of graphic scores jointly produced by The Yuha Archive (Toronto), The Operating System Liminal Lab (New York), and Andata Express (Montreal). Each graphic score sought to explore a “new” concept in musical notation and interpretation.

These scores have been performed by me, or in careful collaboration with an invited guest artist. Notable guest artists who have contributed to interpreting these graphic scores include: Alinovsky, Erich Barganier, Nobuo Kubota, and Elæ Moss.

A total of eleven graphic scores were produced between August 2021 to August 2022.

All scores will be archived online. Please refer to Medium or The Yuha Archive.
