«Action lecture»

The amount of noise produced by the audience controls not only the projection of several films, but also a magnetophone, a spotlight, and a record player. If the audience is loud enough, the spotlight lights up and the magnetophone and projectors are automatically started via a light-dependent resistor. However, the spotlight dims the light of the screen, and the noise made by the audience drowns the sound of the magnetophone. A wave of interaction is thus produced between stage and audience.
