Five pianists enter and sit at a table while a film crew records the event on three cameras. The following instruction is written on a white board: ‘Rule: to play one piano with all the pianists playing together.’ The specific theme – a soundtrack for collective engagement – will be given to the pianists when they return the next day to compose the piece live before the cameras.

The video was featured in Asia Art Archive exhibition Udlot–udlot, curated by Inti Guerrero.
