A permanent interactive installation and vocal performance of six young singers with six speaker-backpacks.

The choir boys are spread around the room, singing one by one against the wall. Like Chinese whispers, each slightly changes the tune or intonation when its his turn.
Each performer has a speaker-backpack on his back. However, they do not sing in their own speaker backpack, but each in a different one of a singer in the other end of the room. This way, every singer carries the acoustic load of another co-performer.
