This event was published first in 1967 by Marcel Alocco under the form of Fluxus scores on cue cards. He writes on them:

MUSIC
Warning to the readers: These "proposals" are (in majority) less public events than individual exercises intended to those who, after the age of reason, persist in asking questions to things.
Alocco - Fluxus - 1967

Despite that, this Fluxus play will be created on March 18, 1968, during a concert conducted by Ben, at the Théâtre des Carmes, in Avignon; then performed again in Nice during concerts at the Artistique with the whole gang.
