The girl was invited, via her orchestra, to be a part of a performance art piece at the Columbia Museum of Art in January. The instructions said to bring a sound, so I supplied the girl and her friend with dominoes and a jar of rice.
Apparently there was perhaps a tacit understanding that the girl was supposed to bring their instruments. Erg. Oops.
But it turned out to be all right.
It was a bit of a challenge as an audience member with a cough as it was a very quiet, subtle piece that lasted 75 minutes. But overall, an interesting experience.
