Stripsody - graphic score

these are pages from Cathy Berberian's composition Stripsody. She gets primary composing credits, but it was drawn by Italian comics artist Roberto Zamarin. The sounds seem to be quotes from published comics. Cathy was a classically trained vocalist, renowned for her ability with extended vocal techniques.

You can hear her performance, accompanied by the pages of the score, here. If you like the sound of that, you might have a different reaction to Serge Gainsbourg's Comic Strip song, with sound effects by Brigitte Bardot.

  1. I love this, and all Graphic Scores. I did not know a comic artists drew it!
