A performance of live electronic works in which vocalists are required to sight-read a score and keep singing endlessly. The score and electronic sound are produced based upon their voices in real-time, and as long as performers are uttering sound the process of performance/generation is repeated. Vocalists must keep swimming in a flood of voices that has been made out of control by media technology, and it even restricts performers.
