Music for Minor Planets is a boxed multiple by Jay Heikes, produced by RITE Editions, that reflects the shifting forms and poetic themes of Heikes’s art. It consists of a series of drawings printed on sheet music. The drawings can be interpreted visually as “mapping movement” (like a seismograph reading) and also acoustically, as abstract musical notations and vibrations. The exquisite drawings are an antidote to inertia and stasis.
