In the organizer's words:

Film Synopsis:
"Open Score," Robert Rauschenberg's work for the "Nine Evenings," began with a tennis match on the floor of the Armory building. Bill Kaminski designed a miniature VHF transmitter that fit into the handle of the tennis racket. A contact microphone was attached to the handle, and the antenna was wrapped around the frame of the racket head. Each time Frank Stella and Mimi Kanarek hit the ball, the vibrations were transmitted to the speakers in the hall, so that a loud BONG could be heard. After each BONG, one of the 48 lights went out. The game ended when the hall was completely dark. In the darkness, 500 people came to the stage. With the help of infrared light and infrared cameras, their outlines were recorded and projected onto three large screens that had been set up directly in front of the audience. In the third part of the work, Simone Forti, who was in a canvas bag, sang an Italian love song while Rauschenberg lifted her up and lowered her down at various locations on the floor of the hall.(Media Art Network)
