Comments:Originally I thought about 6 stations in a circle facing outward the audience around. the first instrument would enter play the sheet on the stand at the end they would move to the next station, the next instrument enters turns the sheet upside down and plays along with the first instrument. i.e. each sheet could be played strictly forwards and backwards. As I began to write this out I would constantly get confused whether I was 'hearing' g-clef or f-clef so I decided to plan this out more extensively. and this is the result. Much like a crab canon but I guess not exact.
Hope someone finds this intriguing enough to play.
