the Q and A piece is based around common situations, sounds, and reactions that belong to everyday city life, and are created ad hoc, by a group of semi-random citizens - in this case: musicians and audience, together. The audience is joining musicians in creating sounds, using their voice, hands, and feet, on their own, by following easy video instructions on their devices. Questions that are being asked in the video instructions create a directed murmur of random words and numbers, spoken all at once. Sound materials in the work fluctuate between completely unified and synchronized gestures on one hand, as well as completely independent, random, and scattered sounds, at other times. It is a showcase of all possible different ways of interpretation and understanding of a single simple action by everyone involved. Showing that no two humans react or think identically, it celebrates beautiful varieties of life surrounded by differences, that city truly nurtures.
