‘Do-it-yourself’ aleatory score was the title of the composing task for Year 9 – they composed their own aleatory pieces and constructed an accompanying score.

They managed to fuse a serious and ongoing interest in architecture with composing and art, with pretty impressive results. The composition shows a convincing sense of structure and pace which is graphically realised in their score.
