The musical part of the piece combines parts from Isaiah's revelation (Is, 1, 2-17) and original text by Geffen. The sound physically constructs the visual as an orchestra performing a contemporary vision of an ancient testament of wrath and reproof. The profits voice radiates from the center speaker, the feminine chorus come out from two glossy sculptures in the shape of royal cat-goddesses, and the two matching vehicles boom the harsh beat. The combination between the old testament and cheap attractions and low bases, is a search for new words describing an old curse.
