MILAN ADAMČIAK 

Notation and graphic sheet music in the work of Milan Adamčiak

The intermedia artist Milan Adamčiak is the most significant originator of musical graphic prints in Slovakia, and worked continuously in this form for over fifty years. He made hundreds of scores in final versions, and many more sketches, drafts, notes and other documentation for them. 1964-65 marked a turning point for Adamčiak, when he began working in three intermedia lines in parallel. He created his first intermedia proto-conceptual instructions for acoustic events and music actions. He started making his initial concrete, experimental, and visual poems. As a cellist interested in 20th-century and avant-garde music, he went to work on music projects, non-traditional nota- tion and concept music.
