    K: - "We need more light over here."
    T: - "Mr. Kasugi would like a little more light on his score please, so he can read this...it's a little dark."
    L: - "This is the last piece. It's written by John Cage. It's, uh, it's called Four6...F-O-U-R, a little 6 in the corner. And it's written for four players, it's the sixth one he wrote, I guess. And we're doing it as a double quartet tonight, it's half an hour long. Each player chooses twelve sounds that they use according to the score. Twelve specific sounds."
