The sound system consists of a self-generating chain of guitars, tension-strapped to amplifiers mounted as totem. An arrangement of video processors stimulates the guitar-amp stack by manipulating video feedback to create resonant drones. Instead of directing audio back to the video system, the audio was treated as a unique proximity experience due to the nature of the system.

This was a combination of two earlier works, where each totem followed the same schematic arrangement and presented a version of the other in the form of monument/broadcast system. The performance was reloaded afterwards to display its alternative version.
