choose 5 favorite sounds in the place where you are.
(it can be for example turning on running water, switching on a coffee machine, or you can sing, whistle, or crumpling paper…try to find out which sounds you like in the place where you are. the only thing is that it shouldn´t come from a speaker.)

put your phone on alarm (flight mode, with sound, no vibration) in 11 min and put it in a closed box (or bag) so that you hardly can hear it when it will ring.

in these 11 min you can play 0 - 5 sounds you did choose (so it´s also possible not to play at all).
each sound should last maximum 90 seconds, it can also be shorter. within the 90 seconds you can also repeat the sound, after 90 seconds latest you have to stop with the sound you are playing at this moment, then you can play the next sound or wait a little bit. when to start each of your sounds is up to you.

independently from playing the sounds after 5 minutes after the beginning of the piece open the window and close it again two minutes later.

playing the piece should be done without a clock or any kind of counting, so try to feel the durations of 90 seconds, 5 minutes, 2 minutes and the total time of 11 minutes. when the phone will ring in the closed box and it happens that you hear it, you have to take it out and switch it off, this will the be end of the piece, no matter if you are at a different point in your interpretation. if you don´t hear the alarm of the phone you just end the piece on your own and then take the phone out of the box and switch the alarm off.
