This article describes a body of collaborative work titled . This web-based artefact brings novel approaches to textile representation in work produced under the umbrella of a practice-based research project in music called Active Notation a collective name for a set of approaches that seek to re-conceptualize the nature of music notation and the performer's relationship with it. Research undertaken during the creation of investigated both aural and visual reception and issues of materiality and temporality in digital representations: how textile objects might become effective visual partners in the temporal domain of score-led music performance. Developed to exist primarily as a software artefact on the web, it links to a physical installation and performance that has stylistic and theoretical associations with the UK touring exhibition (Carnac 2009). A description is given of the digital assets that support the project as a whole, the digital animation of textile images and the interaction with live musical performance. The article concludes with a review of the completed work and implications for future projects.
