Seven artists form a collective. A room is designed to accommodate them, equipped with a quadriphonic sound system. The event takes place in a cellar on a weekday evening. Several instruments and machines are wired together. A beamer and an overhead projector are switched on at the back of the room. A sole microphone is also switched on, but not necessarily used. From the left- and right-hand walls survival blankets fall to the floor, converging in the middle of the room. The artists take up their places at the various stations. First one sound, then others, are launched from the machines, setting the rhythm. Drawings appear on the back wall; words can be heard. Someone reads or says something into the microphone. A person sitting behind one of the synthesizers gets up, walks to another instrument and changes places with the artist who was sitting there before. The sounds evolve together, while the drawings are sometimes interrupted by the coming and going of the artists. The room is filled with the presence of machines, the scenery, sounds and images. It is animated by the movement of the artists, the audience, and the risks of live performance; the whole performance lasts several hours.
