  5. This video features examples of graphic scores generated for Variations I, II, III, IV and VI. These scores modify the two key processes int he works - Variations I, II, II and VI use of cutting out of shapes and transparencies, and dropping the cut outs onto a page; and Variations IV and VI spatial designs for sound.
    The graphics in I and II are devised by the group to represent Cage's instructions. The numbers indicate the number of events, the width the dynamic, the shade as textural density, the length as the time to play, and the height the pitch area. In III, cut out transparent circles are dropped onto a page, then those connected the most are read as a score. this program automates this process. In IV, lines signifing the placement of players are drawn, and in VI, situation of the players and the style of player is demonstrated. These scores are best understood in reference to Cage's orginal scores.
