For any number of performers willing to perform in the same place at the same time.
The idea of this composition is nothing more than an invitation to any number of musicians willing to perform simultaneously anything or in any way they desire. The manuscript is a list of musicians for the first performance, including a diagram for their positions in the performance space; it also indicates various works by Cage and Erik Satie that were performed, as well as a few non-musical works.
