Ronnie Cramer - 2007, 11 min, 16 MM, DIGITAL, USA

Six-hundred/five film clips are assembled and used to create a piece of electronic music. As the visual component appears in the center of the screen, the original analog audio is sent to the left channel while it is simultaneously converted into digital music data and sent to the right channel. The digital data is also transposed into traditional musical notation and displayed on the screen as it is converted. The film includes an animated "chalkboard" introduction that explains the entire process.
