I feel modulation is a good word to describe my work at the minute. Recently i've been struggling to maintain an anchor on a specific theme in my work. 

So to try and refreshing things a little i decided to go back to the drawing board (literally). 

With sound/music still in mind, and something i feel i can no longer get away from, i decided to scratch at these elements of noise and go back to the foundations, Musical notations. Or rather simply manuscript.

By playing about with score or manuscript i think i've touched on some really interesting features of 'modulation' through drawing.
