Today’s Composer Prompt (Put the Audience to Work)

Find an inventive way to incorporate the audience into your piece. As you can’t count on everyone being musically-literate, this participatory role should not depend upon traditional music notation. Indeed, you may discover other ways to include the crowd in your total sound landscape. Perhaps there could be cues given from the conductor that indicate to the audience when or how to make certain prescribed sounds. The possibilities only multiply if you include movement in your framework.
