Answering To Radio Frequency 86.5 MHz, 1981
Concert for one radio and 200 clicking toy frogs
The performer places the radio in the center of the performance space facing a window or a front of windows. The frequency is tuned to 86.5 fm and is held the same throughout the concert.
The performer stands close to the radio and tries to concentrate on the sound of the frequency. Then he hands out two clicking toy frogs to each of the present people, who should answer fairly free to the sound of the frequency. As far as possible only sounds from the clicking toy frogs should be made.
The performer turns back to the radio and tries to concentrate on the sounds of the frequency and the toy frogs. Afterwards he collects the frogs and stands close to the radio. He tries to concentrate on the sound of the frequency. He ends by turning off the radio.
