  Work Details  
  attempts at translating hip hop and dancehall tracks through two translators: (1) using the Audi-Oh vibrator (www.audi-oh.com) which translates rhythm, and especially bass thumps, into vibrations. it was used with its soft rubber butterfly attachment over the bullet and left jiggling on the floor. and (2) performer hears the tracks in his headphones and tries to sing the lyrics as best as possible. the audience never hears the original, they only hear the vibrator on the floor and the pathetic mumbles of the performer. each song was on cd repeat over the course of an hour: 18h-19h Beenie Man Miss Angela 19h-20h Sean Paul Gimme the Light 20h-21h Nelly Hot in Here 21h-22h 50 Cent In Da Club
