Eight glasses are arranged quadratically (30 x 30 cm) on a white oiled table (110 cm diameter). Five bass speakers connected to the table top through a cable are situated underneath the table.

The performance begins when the performer connects the sound source. A barely audible low humming sound emanates from the table. The table top and the glasses start to vibrate and slowly begin moving towards the edges of the table; the glasses occasionally meet and produce a light clanking sound. A glass reaches the edge of the table after approximately 25 minutes, but the oil keeps it in place for a further five minutes. The performance ends either when a glass falls off the table, someone in the audience rescues a glass from falling off the table, or if neither of these two possibilities have occurred at the end of 30 minutes. /
