The instrumentalists constitute a duo. They will previously agree which version they will perform. One of the two members of the duo will act as conductor, who will give the signals to drive the chosen version. For the different readings of the score we will define 5 horizontal lines and 5 vertical columns. There are multiple readings depending on how the lines and columns are combined: 1st.- The standard: Read the lines from left to right and from top to bottom. At the signal of the conductor, both begin to play on the same tempo and perfectly synchronized and finish together. (For all versions, it is necessary to rehearse previously). Other versions: 2nd.- Each one plays completely independent from the other, in its own tempo and its own previously decided version. 3th.- With each player positioned in a different column, a conductor gives the signal to enter, then musicians wait until the next signal to continue at the next box of (their) next column, establishes different pauses of different durations. The piece consists of 25 cells, you have to play all 25 and not repeat anyone. And if you want to evoke the music boxes, you can loop over and over to infinity.. 4th.- ‘Diagonal’ reading: 1-1, 2-2, 3-3, 4-4, 5-5, then make the upper triangle: 1-2, 2-3, 3-4, 4-5, continue on 1-3, 2-4, 3-5, then 1-4, 2-5 and 1-5, then jump to the lower triangle: 2-1, 3-2, 4-3, 5-4, continue on 3-1, 4-2, 5-3, continue at 4-1, 5-2, and finish the piece at 5-1. (please see These are just a few examples among others to make multiple readings combining horizontal lines and vertical columns as in a crossword with multiples readings, being able to reach extreme versions such as starting and ending the piece anywhere, as long as no cell is repeated and at the end all 25 boxes have been played (and if you want to evoke the music boxes, you can loop over and over to infinity). Writing is proportional that is to say that durations of the sounds are proportional to the distance ‘traveled’ on the paper. As an aid to this reading, there are some small lines throughout the piece that define the speed at which it will be performed. This distance or ‘speed’ will be constant throughout the piece and will be previously defined by the performers, it may range from 1 second as the shortest and 2 seconds as the longest, depending on the difficulty and the type of instrument used. (Picc., BassFlute) Blank space means silence, that is to say that there are many short silences or pauses. All notes are short unless they have a stem or bold line that extends them. An up arrow means speeding up and down arrow means slowing down. A comma means breath or small pause (silence). If you want to have fun, … build a 25-sided cube in which on each side there will be a cell of this score... please rotate it !.. Good fun !.
