In the Masada canon, there is a type of piece that Zorn refers to as an “event piece.” In these pieces, the score indicates a series of phrases that require a cue of some sort to trigger the start of each subsequent phrase. Occasionally these phrases will simply be the word NOISE, or another non-traditional music notation.
