Someone is walking and jumping over cesspools that is marked with either the letters A or K. At every cesspool you could here different types of responding sounds. The sounds are recordings and processings of trumpet, kettledrum and hand clap. (In Sweden there is a superstition that says that you mustn’t walk on a cesspool marked with a K. If you do, you must clap your back three times, to free yourself from misfortune.)
