The third piece in a series of experiments on the affect of media anteriority. The first piece began as a
sound composition with video added subsequently. The second piece followed a reciprocal process 
(video first, then sound). In this piece, the anteriority of the video or audio at any given point was 
blurred using real-time and offline processes in which sonic elements controlled visual elements and
vice versa. This piece was assembled from the source material for the first two pieces which consisted
of analog film, microscopic images, digitally synthesized sounds and images, and modified acoustic 
instrument samples.
