Kuhn and a colleague seated themselves in a pair of ordinary charis. Each shift in position caused their chairs, rigged wth microphones, to broadcast every squeak and groan.
Audio equipment hung from the ceiling. With a tape recorder and synthesizer, Kuhn experimented with ordinary sounds -- hand clapping, throat clearing, repetitions and alterations of syllables. He rearranged the noises, played them, and talked back and forth with the quipment and himself.
Chairs and a small, square table stood in the otherwise empty space. The artist walked out, sat down, picked up a pin and held it over the table in a gesture that requested quiet. Once the audience was completely silent, he dropped the pin. Its clink resounded, echoed throughout the room.
