Sawako Nakayasu

Improvisational Score

for equal numbers of musicians and insects

This performance may take place over any duration of time, from 0 seconds to many many years.

A number of insects are placed in a clear container so that they are as comfortable as possible, given the circumstances. They are given oxygen and food and water, though they may not escape. The container of insects is placed onstage and a light is directed through the container and projected onto a larger screen so that the audience may see the insects.

Each musician chooses an insect, and plays accordingly.

If two insects begin fighting, the corresponding musicians should also fight, musically or literally.

If an insect dies, the corresponding musician should also die, musically or literally.
