Mighty machines – human constructions and tools- in the steel forge modify giant blocks' sizes and shapes. In the factory it is obvious that the human power is capable of exceptional transformation. The sound performance describes the same mechanism: it picks out of the ocean of voices and noises of our factual everyday and crates music in the act of ultimate sound transformation. The performance is questioning the human will to transform. Duality in the pair transform/conform weakens under the pressure over form.

In the factory there is a constant steel performance under the rhythm of utility. Workers keep it going and preserve it like ancient fire in three shifts. Exceptional audio visual picture is a byproduct and sound of the anvil is considered a nuisance. In this strange factory's context, the music subordinates to the conditions, trying to fit the uncontrolled member of the band (the anvil) in the aesthetic organism, and then tries to forget it, drown it and exceed it.
