Summer Scores is a collaborative project with the composer/performers of the department of Music at the Iceland Academy of the Arts. The book is inspired by Fluxus, SÚM, and Dieter Roth. The title of our book is in reference to an LP/7” record set we found while digging through the archives of the Living Art Museum (Nýlistasafnið). Summer Music (Verlag, 1979) was recorded at Dieter Roth's studio in Mosfellsbær by students of the department of Visual Communication of the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts. The format of our book is inspired by the SÚM III catalogue for their 1969 exhibition in Reykjavík. One of our guiding principles for this project was the 1961 prose score by Fluxus artists La Monte Young: “Draw a straight line and follow it.” Our book, Summer Scores, has a DJ-set accompaniment that was performed at Kaffi Vínyl on November 8, 2017. The scores in our book were premiered during a John Cage commemerative concert curated by Berglind María Tómasdóttir at Mengi in Reykjavík on December 6, 2017. We made an edition of 30 books and you can purchase one at Mengi for 2000 ISK.
