Hermann Nitsch does not write his music in regular musical notation, but divides the individual movements into time segments of one minute duration and precisely defines sound events, durations, dynamics and actions with words or signs. His instructions are e.g.: deep sound, whole tone cluster, D minor, F major or noise.
