About Active Notation
Fifteen Images (Le Jardin Pluvieux) (2009) goes beyond the use of Active Notation as a method of simply re-ordering and suggesting possible interpretations of the fully notated score. It incorporates these elements and additionally allows the performer to investigate the compositional process itself as part of a unique multilayer online score.

In such a multi-layered approach the performer-improviser can decide which representation, or representations, of the material might be displayed during performance. He or she may be happiest playing from a harmonic abstract overlaid with some rhythmic detail. Alternatively, once acquainted with the scales or colour-tonalities that each Image is based around, performance may be read from an abstracted version of the score showing no common notation at all: simply the play of colour.
