Treatise by Cornelius Cardew

Treatise, once described as the 'Mount Everest' of graphic scores, was written from 1963-1967 and consists of numbers, shapes, and symbols (some musical) whose interpretation is left up to the performer. While the composer. CorneliusCardew, has never given explicit instructions on how it should be performed, he has suggested that interpreters devise rules for themselves in advance.
