The journey from Leipzig to Örebro in Sweden was undertaken using a Mercedes limousine equipped with two classical musicians from the Swedish Chamber Orchestra. They played a 16-hour classical concert together with the car, for the artists and the motorway. In Örebro the car was driven into a bed of wet concrete. The 16 hours concert was recorded and compressed down to 30 minutes, and was played out of the hood of the Mercedes stuck in the concrete during the exhibition.
