We took it to heart and incorporated instructional cues closest to our library scope, just like these 5 random examples:

  • Say your full name, quickly, 11 times
  • Spell the word 'Mississippi'
  • Sing a nursery rhyme replacing every word with ‘school’
  • Say out loud every member of your family's first name. With every name spoken, you gain superpowers
  • Improvise a limerick in the style of an ageing headmistress

There are quite a lot of cues in total, giving performers of random scores plenty of opportunity to cough (seemingly one of Matthew's favourite sound effects).

Most of the linked collection is experimental, often seemingly based on regular expressions. As for instructional scores Matthew works frequently with simple poetic Fluxus-style events. Not focused on "establishing a system of interaction" like most of our library games. Activities that consist of a few cues working together are on the full list of playable items (and also listed below).
