treatise
    :  a systematic exposition or argument in writing including a methodical discussion of the facts and principles involved and conclusions reached

Not Art Records, in collaboration with International Contemporary Ensemble’s OpenICE program, is proud to present this live realization of Treatise in it’s entirety, featuring an ensemble of live-electronics performers. Composed from 1963 to 1967, Treatise is considered by many to be Cornelius Cardew’s greatest work and a milestone in the development of non-standard scoring. The score itself is undeniably beautiful, an architectural wonder that manages to surprise and delight throughout it’s 193 pages. Composed entirely of abstract visual elements, the work bears no description beyond itself. Each performer is left to his own creativity to choose and create the resulting sounds.

In keeping with Not Art Records’ mission to support electronic artists who are pushing the limits of their medium in multiple genre, we are presenting an ensemble of all live-electronics performers, including artists from the NYC improvisation scene, experimental RnB, ambient, and noise/drone.
