Brickworks No 1-12 uses specific brick colour tones found on Vivid’s exterior wall as a notation scheme from which the artist has created 12 musical scores for midi piano. One piano score can be heard every minute, both visually represented on a monitor and played throughout the exhibition space on overhead speakers.
