During the opening of the installation The Party Effect on Friday night, August 11th 1995, there was a special performance by the Dutch artist Arthur Elsenaar. The sounds of a radiostation controlled the muscles which determined Elsenaar's facial expressions.

In Ontvanger (Receiver): a tableau vivant a wired person is listening to the radio; his face displays his reactions to what he hears. (Electrical stimulation of facial muscles controlled by radio dial; with music by simulated radio receiver.)
