On the 1st of February 2007, between 07:00 and 00:00 hours of the following day, ten performers, spread among ten different points of Madrid at different times of the day, uninterruptedly describe everything they see and hear at that time and place, and this endless description, recited like a prayer, is individually recorded by each performer, creating an audio recording of a length of one hour.

The description recited consist of a description of people, situations, attitudes, events, buildings, structures, trajectories, activities, routines, objects, atmospheres, circumstances, sounds, smells and even the impressions, deductions and intuitions of the subject describing or narrating.

It is fundamental that the ‘prayer’ is not interrupted and that the people who happen to be with the performer are aware that they are being integrated into a narrative structure (by the mere fact of hearing how they and what they are doing are being described and knowing that the description is being recorded).

The audio tracks created by the performers or ‘prayers’, may be heard, downloaded and mixed between them in a web page (www.rezosprayers.org), allowing the visitor to somewhat reproduce the complexity of the experience produced and experienced by the performer.
