The windowpanes of a large house were gradually smashed from the inside using large stones, in changing rhythms and at changing speeds. The sequence in which the 200 windows were shattered was determined by random generator, the rhythm and tempo were orchestrated and only appear chaotic. There are rapid, hard and loud passages as well as calm, more delicate ones, when tension builds up once again. The sound is just as important a component of the work as the image.
