We don't talk a lot about notation, because notation isn't always all that interesting, but in this case, it's well worth a second look. Eye music is the practice of turning a written score into a work of visual art, something that the performer can enjoy without affecting the music the audience hears. It was a popular practice in the Renaissance, with scores shaped like hearts, bizarre notation choices, and artistic puzzles to make reading the score an adventure instead of just a chore.
