The News: Monday-Friday Songbook

Series of ten unique works. Pen, pencil and collage on paper; 17” x 11 3/4”

The ten works on paper in the series The News: Monday-Friday Songbook are transcriptions of the ten songs in Bouchard’s song cycle The News: Monday-Friday. Collages of the lyrics (cut from the New York Times on the date referenced in the title) are presented alongside the artist’s own system of musical notation, devised to emphasize visual patterns in the melodic line.
