    Sonic art is often restricted to a standard vision of musical "composition". It draws a distinction between composer and performer. The act of composing becomes the primary source of creative work. The performer is the bridge between composer and listener. While the performer does have some freedom to interpret the material, she is expected not to deviate from the notes written on the score. In Drop, I would like to explore a new relationship between composer and performer, by inviting the performer to participate in the creative process. The "score" given to the performer is created by repeatedly dropping a marker pen on a wooden canvas at random. Each point is marked with a number, date, or time according to its chronological order. The performer can then interpret this "score" in her way. She can begin playing any stave that she likes, and stop at any point that she wants. The performer is also invited to respond to the score in a spontaneous and improvised way. This performance aims to be a playful experiment beyond judgments of good or bad musical quality.
