One performer will pass their audio/visual outputs to another performer, who uses the incoming signals as a source for their own content and, in turn, passes their signals to yet another performer. By arranging the ensemble in a ring, the shared signals form a feedback system that has no beginning or end.

The performers will process and generate audio-visual content using live coding. Live coding is a practice in computational art where an artist writes code in real-time to improvisationally create audio and/or visual content that is presented to a live audience.

Audience members will be invited to move around, lay down, sit, and congregate freely.
