This edition is tied together. Correct would be a collection of loose sheets, to be able to turn the pages. You need modern technics: talking, key slaps, aeolian sounds, mixes of breath and sound, tongue pizzicato, whispering, glissandi, multiphonics. First one has to learn to read the music. Really difficult thing...
