Notation as a composition, as an opposite of composing as a notation. I took a text from John Cage and researched ways in which I could turn that piece of text into a music piece. Taking the plain text and use it as if it were a notation of a composition.

I divided the text into 6 rows, representing the 6 strings on a guitar. The characters which were a musical note (A-B-C-D-E-F-G) were played on that string.

It is a piece that can be played on both the guitar and the piano. The Piano version is the one you hear in the example because it has a nicer ring to it.
