About Mauricio Rodriguez: Meaning the Score
'Meaning The Score' is an exhibition of graphic music scores where I explore the dynamic relation of music and its multiple forms of notation. The endless plasticity of music notation has inspired in me the possibility of "listening" to sound and music by appreciating their visual representations.

I call the works of this exhibit 'Tyscores': hand-typed engravings produced on an old, heavy-duty music typewriter (Olympia SG-3); music typewriters never had a widespread use after lithographic music printing, so these works also aim to revive an engraving practice that is almost unknown in the times of generalized usage of music notation software.

About the Artist
Mauricio Rodriguez' art finds its expression through the lively interaction of music structure and visual representation. His visual work is "sounding music for the eye." Educated as a musician and composer, he earned a DMA and a MA at Stanford University. His chamber, orchestral, and multi-media works are frequently played in the United States and Europe. He teaches music theory and music technology at CSMA, and piano performance at San Jose City College. Since 2016, he has been a fellow of the Mexican Endowment for the Arts.
