Composer's note, the idea behind the piece as it was composed:  "It was scored (graphically) for a student or faculty improv ensemble plus a group of audience members (about 8-10 people), each equipped with a small tape player, cassette tapes and pre-recorded tapes. There were a number of "games" (movements), each about 2-3 min long."  The lack of readily available small cassette recorders makes the concept obsolete, until composer can re-score it for current techology.
