The sonic potential of wood does not rest solely in its structural characteristics.
Dryad is a plank of wood, milled and carved to expose characteristics of the grain as an object score:
Dryad: For any instrument or pair of instruments. Use the grain of the wood as musical notation.
An individual or pair of performers are free to interpret the grain patterns, carving, shadows, textures and form as they would a piece of traditionally notated music.
The staff lines provide a musical context while the three-dimensional object presents vague yet fluid suggestions for the musicians.
