This research explored the development of rhizomatic musical scores that are arranged cartographically with nodal points allowing for alternate pathways to be traversed. Concepts and technology evolved in the creation of five works by the author Ubahn c. 1985: the Rosenberg Variations , The Last Years , Sacrificial Zones , detritus  and trash vortex .The five works explore motion in 2-dimensional space in the context of a musical score; representation of sound and notation; the adoption of cartographical features of digital maps in the context of the musical score and variation of musical material through transformation of the score. The scored linked notational material, live performers and distinguishable electronic processing and to allow the audience to follow choices made through projection of the rhizomatic score and the movements of the performers. The works developed a number of structural strategies: a narrative approach (Ubahn), the Refrain (detritus) and converging node (Trash Vortex) struictures.The works were performed in Los Angeles (Calarts), Tokyo Metropolitain University, Reykjavik (Dark Music Days), Prague (Skolska 28), Brisbane (NIME) Canberra (ANU), Melbourne (ACMC) and Perth (ICMC). The research formed the basis for a papers presented at NIME 2016, TENOR, International and Australasian Computer Music conferences. The Score of Detritus featured in the fashion and culture magazine METAL (Barcelona).
