Somewhere Between Something and Nothing

Rhythmic Visual music constructed from audio visual fragments created with analog technologies. With a gradual increase in complexity from a simplistic beginning in which the audio visual relationship is quite apparent, it transforms into an audio visual collage where this connection, although always present, is more difficult to discern.

Each visual element is represented in the audio mix by the sound that created it, what you hear is what you see, the soundtrack being essentially a video edit.


The sound created the visuals using voltage controlled video synthesis.

Video fragments of the orignal recording were then rearranged and composited to create the soundtrack.
