Ice Blocks was initially developed as part of a workshop teaching middle and high school musicians in NYC about creating graphic notation, scores that use symbolism outside of the Western notational conventions. A notation example that I made for the workshop proved inspiring to use in performance, and PLOrk played a piece based on it this past fall for a performance at Grounds for Sculpture in Harrison, NJ.
