There was no sound in the space. Performers performed into transmitters. Attendees received a radio with headphones, to access the performances. They also received a "schedule" listing what performances were on which frequencies throughout the evening. Attendees then chose to listen to those frequencies, other commercial frequencies available, or the minimal ambient room noise.
