Einstein on The Beach is Philip Glass's first and longest opera, which radically changed the way opera is performed and viewed. Glass's root in minimalist music employs simple composition that is repeated throughout, with slight variations that slowly elevates the music from its starting point to its climax.

This typographic music score is designed to visualise the experience of Glass's composition itself: simple, minimal, repetitive, mathematical, yet fluid at the same time. It utilises basic punctuation marks to represent different instruments, creating repetitive shapes that slowly transform from one composition to another.

23 minutes of the trial scene is visualised into 20 metre long typographic music score.

Repetition of various musical instruments in different intervals creates unique visual texture.
