Yoko Ono created Secret Piece partly in response to the challenge of transcribing the sounds of bird calls into music notation. A photo of the score appears in Midori Yashimoto's book Into Performance: Japanese Women Artists in New York (Rutgers University Press, 2005). The score shows treble and bass clefs, the notation of F below middle C as tied half notes, plus a hand-written text, with the accompaniment of the birds singing at dawn

In Cut Piece-one of Yoko Ono’s early performance works-the artist sat alone on a stage, dressed in her best suit, with a pair of scissors in front of her. The audience had been instructed that they could take turns approaching her and use the scissors to cut off a small piece of her clothing, which was theirs to keep. Some people approached hesitantly, cutting a small square of fabric from her sleeve or the hem of her skirt. Others came boldly, snipping away the front of her blouse or the straps of her bra.
Japanese multimedia artist, singer and songwriter Yoko Ono has released 14 studio albums, eight collaborative albums, and 40 singles as a lead artist. Married to English singer-songwriter and the Beatles member John Lennon until his murder in 1980, she has contributed several B-sides to his singles from late 1960s to the 1980s. Ono released her debut studio album Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band in December 1970, faring poorly in the United States.
