A sound action for 1000 performers
A great mass of people tries to make conversation. Nobody can understand each other, people get angry, they cannot speak anymore. Some radio-sets and mobile telephones are speaking in their place. Exasperated, people try to find a common language in singing. But not every music theme has its right answer. And at the end everybody wants to sing together.. The cycle closes. Everybody starts again speaking in their own idiom.
