MATERIALS:  Herald's trumpet and handmade flag.

    This object contains the single note and the single word of a new song. It is a score that has never been performed and it is unclear 'how it goes'. Just as any score, it is awaiting the interpretation by the performer. Will it be a heartfelt, even embarrassing, plea for spiritual openness? Or will it be a regal announcement that a place has opened for business?
