The ‘graphic score’ Manga Scroll is composed of onomatopoeia, but in this case the words have been drawn from North American translations of Japanese graphic manga novels and collaged into an undulating, linear composition on a long paper scroll. However, Manga Scroll is a vocal score, intended for performance. In this sense it evokes avant-garde, performed phonetic poems, such as Kurt Schwitters’ Dada work Ursonate (1932), but also pays tribute to Cathy Berberian’s Stripsody (1966).
