In Living room music for percussion quartet, one of Cage's earlier works, pulse and rhythm are still important elements. Movements I, III and IV are for percussion instruments; movement II, Story, is for four voices. In Story, a little poem by Gertrud Stein is set to music by treating phrases, words, syllables and letters from the poem as musical material.

Once upon a time
The world was round
And you could go on it
Around and around

All four voices by Marinissen.

The video is me writing the poem on a chalkboard wall.
