Listeners who occasionally find themselves listening to new experimental music frequently describe themselves as being lost. Although listeners are in a better position to declare this a problem and do something about it, composers and performers of new experimental music, who are aware of this fact, are also in a position to do something about it. Composers and performers can: (1) ignore this fact and accept as fate that listeners will find themselves lost; (2) strive to make music less new and experimental so that listeners will find themselves in familiar surroundings; (3) avail themselves of advertisers' packaging techniques that can turn anything into a familiar thing; (4) treat performance as a context for teaching - wherein being lost is a necessary and temporary state - by inventing new ways of presenting new experimental music. Response (1) reflects no interest in social change; responses (2) and (3) go along with social changes that are part of the status quo; response (4) reflects an interest in creating social change that goes against the status quo. Response (4): treating performance as a context for learning implies a shift of medium. A shift of medium from music to theater, for example, can be done in such a way that listeners become intrigued by experiment in music. One such project that has not yet been exhausted is Composed Rehearsals. The general assignment for composed rehearsals is to write a scene in which the concert presentation of a piece flips into a rehearsal situation. In the scene, sections of the music that present difficulties for listeners are shown to present difficulties for the performers as well; while performers grapple with performance problems, they give listeners an inside view of the piece. The scripts have to be so written that the quarrels that erupt, the glooms that descend, the debates decided by trying out different versions allow the eavesdropping listener to get an insight into the significance of a piece: to glimpse some of the alternatives chosen and something of the process of their choosing.
