*Note – This piece is often performed with dancer and slides, which are close-ups of the original artwork Drifting Over a Red Place by Dorothy Linden. The score was included in the book Notations 21 by Theresa Sauer, a stunning collection that builds on the legacy of John Cage’s Notations with selected compositions that break new ground in non-traditional notation.
