II: O & Y: Do you remember Beethovens Fifth & Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue

This is a reference to the Oral Tradition in Music, We witnessed in our prelude a story from the Dreaming of the Guugu Yimithirr people. How many of us can remember the most popular hold music. Is hold music the new way of oral tradition?

The players in Orange and Yellow Squares will play a 30 seconds of Beethovens Fifth and a 30 seconds of Rhapsody in Blue until I come to them to tell them which one to repeat for the rest of the 4 minute movement

  • Lucky #: I like squids and fishes, 0’s, 8’s and 2’s, but I don’t find them especially lucky.

9 + 8+ 22 – 8 (-2) (-0)

=31 (or 29) (or 39)

= 4 (or 2) (or3)

Start Square: Red4 (or Red 2) or Red3

End Square: Orange1 (or Green7) or nocolour5

The Rubick’s Cube accomodates indecision and often multiplies it

From Red to Orange/Green/No Colour: One thing is for sure, you will be moving out of the Red Square after maybe digging out all of the buckets. You dont feel like you have a lucky number now. But you yearn for a temperance by going to the orange or green or base from the red. Even in your extreme triangle cusp, I can still predict that. Having no colour means you have sunk between the lines, you are the black behind the coloured stickers on the cube. You are so deep right now.

From 4 to 1/2 to 7/3 to 5:

Pig To Monkey. Canary to Eagle. Wolf to Meerkat is all cancelled out by the nocolour. The power of zero is omnipresent. You are so deep. You are the sea. No wonder you like squids and fishes. So much wonderous lives in you. You have that yearning for temperace and the sea takes you there, it is all over, in all climates, waiting to be discovered. I am glad I discovered you.

Because you are the special one, the Rubick’s Cube asks you for a favour. On the day when the others receive a palmcard, you will receive a score and a CD and boombox. The score is repetitive, so when you get sick of playing on your violin, you can play the CD. You will be responsible for the Green Boombox. Sometimes a player could approach you and ask you to play the CD, unfortunately you must immediately finish and play the CD. After the performance, I will give you a lucky number you can use it from then on, for lotto etc.

10 + 4 + 20 – 17

=17

= 8

Starting Squre: Green8

Signature Move: 1 step diagonal, 7 steps across

Ending Square: Blue4

Joy’s Path

From 8 to 4: From a power number to a spiritual number, you use your power for good! Born with power, the challenge is to use it for good. And you shall. Don’t get distracted within the cube. Go STRAIGHT to ur destiny! Its a challenge to become a wolf from the powerful snake but you have to realise that u have a quest.

From Green to Blue: From a temperate spring to a bluesy winter. This also complements the journey from snake to wolf. You harness all the regenerative power of spring. You are so self-determined that you find your quest and set sight for winter, where most people fear to tread, lucky you have all that power behind you. When winter gets cold remember your inner strength and your quest.
