"FRAMEWORK is a project by Copenhagen-based musician/composer Mads Emil Nielsen.
It consists of 14 hand-drawn graphic scores with simple instructions and a recording for each score.

These short audio pieces are made during 2013 and 2014, based on generative synthesizer patches
and recordings / loops of cymbals and percussion. Furthermore, he received interpretations from artists
such as Andrea Neumann (DE), Marc Méan (CH) and Adam Pultz Melbye (DK) - posted here.

First edition of 50 copies, numbered and signed.
Scores + audio by Mads Emil Nielsen. Printed at Officin.

Scores #7 and 8 are part of the Notations 21 Project traveling exhibition.

"The internal logic of this is quite specific - in places it reminds me of Gustavo Becerra-Schmidt's sparse
Synthi studies, yet considerably more fleshed-out and multi-tracked - Nielsen clearly knows his way around
his chosen instrument & the tightly controlled, flitting micro-events that make up each piece's "Orchestra" are extremely well chosen. Nielsen's thought process appears to be at a unique nexus of Cardew-styled pattern-notation experiments & "Live" - or more accurately, "Performed" Electronic Music & this set is definitely one-of-a-kind - plus I haven't seen a hand / home-made edition this thorough since Martijn Hohmann sent over that box of Universaal Kunst editions back in 2010." - Mimaroglu Music, US."
