He promised a music-composition mail art and he did it, with help from the low-tech gadget known as the dart:Second scan above is the back of the composition, with out-y dart holes. I am honored! Holes before music, holes marking the path for music, ending with Music like no other.

Oh yes, a bit not easy to play. Rhythm is one thing, and many flats are another, especially B-flat, which appears often. But B-flat has its silver linings, doesn't it? 

You made me very happy, Frieder. Danke, and for the included completely Speck-like drawings. This music will have to be framed.

I´m always thinking in B flat it was new to me that I´m throwing B-flat too. Always C dur is a little too boring, so its ok.

Polytonality via L+H, wow Frieder. Never thought of it till I heard it just now. It makes you feel cuckoo, in a good way. Especially interesting, then, that your dart made many B-flats.

Yah, that's the one I hope to hang from my ceiling. It's brilliant. Unique dartboard picture too. I don't suppose you filmed it...well, you were busy hearing Stan + Ollie. I tried playing it on my piano but the challenge was beyond my capability--mostly visual capability, because I could hardly read the thing! I will try again and then record it for you if it works out.

The composition without holes aren `t mine they are from the 17th century. And the music holes came by throwing Dart arrows while hearing a film of Stan and Ollie two american Dadaists

You're right--wouldn't have gotten that from google in a million years! Thanks.

Yes, it's truly Great--needs to spin in a frame that shows both sides. It can't be put away.

Now we'll have an esoteric conversation between Frieder and Erni on the subject of "roof"? And in German. Just remember, google will translate.
