Kees de Groot (member of Auto Awac) has a rather ironic attitude towards the achievements of our affluent society. For him a transistor radio is not interesting as a receiver but as a producer of arbitrary sound which is applied rhythmically. A multinational oil corporation is brought down to the dimensions of a jigsaw puzzle picture. Characteristics of the economic market are compensated by exotic singing and ritual drumming. The most trivial objects serve as musical instruments. Although a woman's portrait gives rise to a series of fine electronic variations, it ultimately pokes fun at the artificiality in a household context.
