Is it possible to imagine an alternative system for musical notation? Up to what point can this system of notation engage with a diversified, non-normative experience? Could this be an opportunity for experimentation with sound that allows for the inclusion of other diverse bodies (with blindness or reduced vision) and non-hegemonic sensory experiences (touch and amateurs) in the process of musical composition and interpretation?

A presentation, a talk and a performance based on Shapereader Chorus Workshop held at HIrikilabs. An experiment on how a tactile communication system (Shapereader) can be used as an alternative to graphic musical notation through the use of touch and participants' voices.The workshop starts with the union between the Ilan Manouach-created Shapereader tactile communication system, and the vocal research carried out by singer and composer Maria Arnal.
