This series deals with music materials, parameters and dimensions and with changing them.

Preparation

Setup

You may practise contents first if you need to.

Gameplay instructions

One player indicates by hand-sign a number between 1 and 5. Everybody then plays according to the instructions belonging to that number, until someone else indicates a new number. Sections with a new indication can may follow each other fast or slow as you like.

No pre-arranged sequences neither of elements nor of musicians indicating numbers.

The piece ends when there is no playing and no one takes a new initiative.
