A sound work based on Joseph Beuys's Ja Ja Ja Ja Ja, Nee Nee Nee Nee Nee (1968).

The piece consists of all the the clear instances of 'ja' (yes) and 'nein' (no) in Kommissar Rex series 3. The various fragments of "yes/no" (ja/nein) have been scripted to play back at random in a flash file. All of the associated background sounds have been retained as much as possible so that the piece becomes a sound collage
