Derk Richardson interviews the members of the ROVA Saxophone Quartet, at San Francisco’s Mission Cultural Center on June 5, 2005. They discuss the relationships of imagery to sound, including the use of graphic notation in spontaneous compositions, as well as using film imagery to guide an improvisation. In addition, Conrad Steiner talks about the experimental films of Stan Brakhage, which have been used by members of ROVA as inspiration for some of their works. This program also includes a number of live improvisations by ROVA, based on some of the graphic scores which brought to show to the audience.
