  15. 15. The score consists of 10 sheets of paper and 12 transparencies. The sheets of paper have drawings of 6 differentiated (in thickness and texture) curved lines. 10 of thetransparencies have randomly distributed points (the amounts of points on the transparencies are 7, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 22, 26, 29 and 30). Another transparency has a grid, measuring two by ten inches, and the last one contains a straight line (10¾ inch). By superimposition the performer creates a structure from which a performance score can be made: One of the transparencies with dots isplaced over one of the sheets with curved lines. Over this one places thegrid. A point enclosed in the grid is connected with a point outside, using the straight line transparency. Horizontal and vertical measurements of intersections of the straight line with the the grid and the curved line, create a time-bracket and actions to be made.
