Concept for a perfomance of El Lissitzky's Topography of Typography, 1923 and Typographical Facts, 1925. While reading these texts, there was a certain, subjective, rhythm. This notation makes the rhythm experiencable for others.

A sheet of notes for these texts sets the rhythm, pronounciation and volume of the reader. 
A reader can be a person talking as well as a dancer interpretating the notes in his dancing way or optical sound scratched on film. 
The actual words of the texts lose their importance.
