A simple mechanism composed of a wooden recipient, a rope and pulley, through which the visitor drops a coconut to roll down an inclined wooden platform. The coconut that rolls the path towards an abrupt end and falls to the ground floor, at the entrance of the museum, emitting a loud sound while hitting the floor, finally fracturing and expelling its liquid. Because of its round, irregular shape and brown coating fiber, a coconut resembles a human head. Thus, when people activate the piece, they become perpetrators and accomplices, and the line of coconuts becomes a row of decapitated heads tumbling down, one after another, towards their end (or beginning). As musical notes, they stumble through a wooden pentagram, fall down to the ground and transmute, creating an uncertain melody: the music of a tragic carnival, the anthem of chaos.
