*1) rub the surface starting with the tip of one finger (and adding more eventually, if required), in a circular motion. Achieving a stable hissing sound. Use both hands when possible
*2) rub the surface with the tip of the snare drum's stick, with the necessary pressure to achieve a squeeking unstable sound
*3) rub the cymbal very fast and without producing a striked attack
*5) all text in crochets means spoken text
*4) read the text in silence and percute each syllable, always with the fingers (unless mallet be indicated), use both hands when possible

*6) different sections of the text are required to be read by each percussionist
*7) rub the tom with the necessary pressure to get a squeeking almost stable and low sound. Fingers could be moist
*8 the dotted squares mean silent scenic actions. Should be interpreted as an theatrical gesture, from the given musical action, in a very exaggerated manner and strictly without any sound production

Mexicans and make the effort to educate them in the American way of life, in our values, and in respect for the
leadership of the United States. Mexico will need competent administrators, and over time, these young people will
come to occupy important positions and will eventually take posession of the presidency itself. And without the

This piece is about migration of energies from one realm to another.
The notion of transducer allows to transform a text material into its different
outputs. Of course this processes are inherent with political power exercises
Performance of the piece
Before the performance of the piece, and before audience comes in,
an announcement must be made:
Only people with a non-US passport is allowed to enter.
After the piece ends, all people should come in.
The announcement should be made by the staff of the venue.

Signs of specific techniques on sound production are expained on score,
in each case. Different lines serve to prolong the sound or gesture over time.
The used text is provided on the score. The reading of it, should always begin
in a different part and every percussionist should choose a different starting point.
If the percussionist ends reading, he/she should repeat the process.
Vibraphone is prepared. Big pieces of foil must be placed loose over the keys to
achieve a white-noised colored sound material each time one key is hit.
The ideal printing size for this score is 56.9 x 44 cm. (4 letter size or 2 tabloid size)

Time is divided in pieces of 5 seconds. The score is written in two ways.
When precise rhythmic patterns are required, quarter will be always equals 60 bmp.
The other way is proportional to the context and placement of the sounds.
When precise synchronization is required, it will be pointed with a vertical arrow.
