A paper score is not used for performance; because there is very little to no sense of pulse in large parts of the work, video files of the scrolling score are provided (in three segments), for the players to read from. These files include the piece’s audio as well.
A good set-up is: one person cueing the 3 videos on a laptop, which is fed to a larger monitor for the players to read from. Stereo audio comes out from the laptop. The only other component is the separate amplification of the violins, for blend purposes.
