I installed various objects in the KoCA kiosk. I started the performance by getting changed inside the kiosk, then I went outside, playing the recorder. I climbed up on the roof of the kiosk by the help of a ladder and a tree, where I ran around, playing my melody. The melody I composed while being a busker in the streets of Europe in 1994. At some point horses could be heard, getting closer. A horse cart appeared, the driver dressed up like Goethe. In the cart a girl was playing my melody on a recorder, only much improved. As they drew closer, I climbed down from the roof, ran to meet them, and climbed into the cart. We drove around the town for a while, the girl continuing to play.
