This piece is improvised.

The performer may use any instrument or other sound making device to improvise with.

The performer decides all pitches, melodies, harmonies, rhythms, dynamics, timbres, textures, tempos, characters, dimensions, duration, and any other elements.

The performer should wear a mask with political intent
and to hide their identity.

Untitled Anarchist Poem

By John Cage

​We don’t need government
We need utilities.

Air, water, energy
Travel and communication means
Food and shelter.

We have no need for imaginary mountain ranges
Between separate nations.

We can make tunnels through the real ones.

Nor do we have any need for the continuing division of people
Into those who have what they need
And those who don’t.

Both Fuller and Marshal McLuhan
Knew, furthermore
That work is now obsolete.
We have invented machines to do it for us.

Now that we have no need to do anything
What shall we do?

Looking at Fuller’s geodesic world map
We see that the Earth is a single island, Oahu.
We must give all the people all they need to live
In any way they wish.

Our present laws protect the rich from the poor.

If there are to be laws, we need ones that
Begin with the acceptance of poverty as a way of life.

We must make the world safe for poverty
Without dependence on government.
