Hitoshi Nomura



Hitoshi Nomura made ‘Moon Scores’ between 1975 and 1979, the project consisted to take photographs from the lunar body moving across the night sky.  Nomura marked the film  with five lines, turning the photographs series into an item of musical notation. Transferring the notes to staff paper, he then had the chance compositions performed by a chorus and a string quartet. Later Nomura made a similar series called "birds" photographing just birds.
