A site and situation specific performance, Grounding, is based on interdisciplinary approach and on integration of various matters formally in a simple way. It is an artistic ritual-like performance where a brand new musical instrument is sacrificed as it's been played. The performer in black suit walks in a ceremonially slow pace. He drags a guitar amp on hand truck followed by an iconic electric guitar, Fender Stratocaster, sliding along the ground a few meters behind. Its strings facing the ground are played by the surface of the ground. The laud amplified sound varies on every step. It is calling people to join the procession. At the end of the performance the guitar is worn out.
