To experience this installation, the audience must wrap the music with their entire body, creating "ears" in the place of other bodily organs. Since listening in this instance bypasses the ears, the deaf can also tune in. The piece played through the rod is a personal feminine song from the artist’s mouth tot the audience’s mouth, a very intimate and personal moment in this public experience. This installation, as with the Trembling Piano, generates a new, unfamiliar, listening experience. The body of the audience wrapped around the piece. The human organ producing sound now takes the role of the one that can hear sound. the audience is then invited to revisit the first installation through another viewpoint in the gallery space, and with a morphed, physical understanding of its auditory layout.
