Kiss / Kuss / 吻

for any number of performers

In the 1940s, composer John Cage and several friends played an exquisite corpse called Party Pieces. One composer wrote one bar of music plus two notes, folded the paper at the bar line and passed it to their fellow composer. Invited by Cage 100, Au Yong contributes the composition Kiss / Kuss / 吻 for the Party Pieces Project.
