There are ten parts, one o a page. A performance can be made of any number of them, repeacing none, or of any one, repeated no more thanten times.Each part, or page, js a score, and each player should hâve his copy of ir.Play all that 16 notated on â pâge, in any convenient sequence, not repeating anything; except n lX, where any of the events can be playeo oronlitted any number of dmes.Black notes are variously short, up to about one second. Wlth $ems as sixteenth notes (e.g, in III, etc.) they are very short, \\hite noresare of any length, sometimes determined by the requirements of coordinatjon (see further on),A dynamic rrdication may stand by itself (as at left top of I): assume a note o go with it or apply ir to any note given on t;e page.
