You say, Joanna: "The results were all amazing and very different from one another."
The interesting think would be to see what these differing results may have in common. One could perhaps assume duration (not necessarily though...). Do any of them include periods of silence (rests) while the image is going on? Any parallelisms with respect to change in color, brightness, speed, and the resulting rhythms? Any correspondence with particular position on screen (the screen surface interpreted, say, as a keyboard),

Furthermore, suppose sound and image displayed separately, e.g., 5 of each, to a first time ("naive") spectator. Can it be detected which ones belong together? What a statistic of such pairing would be within a number of spectators? And especially in the absence of any straightforward illustration-trigger (the Eiffel

  Dear Andy and Frameworkers,
  Will Redman and I co-curated a program called Eyes and Ears in 2005 for the Carnegie Art Center in Western NY. We invited 12 media artists to create silent or near silent films and videos that were read by members of the Open Music Ensemble as graphic scores. These media art works were created not as silent films to be played to but rather, graphic scores to be played. The results were all amazing and very different from one another.
  Thanks to funding from the New York State Music Fund, we compiled the works and their sounds onto a DVD that I'd be happy to send you. The compilation is currently on view at the Cleveland Institute of Art.
  Will and I are working on a second installment of the Eyes and Ears project to be realized in a live performance at Hallwalls, Buffalo, NY in April of 2008. The visual artists involved in Part II are Hollie Lavenstein, Bruce Checefsky, Caroline Koebel, Zach Poff, Stephanie Maxwell, and Sara Hornbacher.
  For more information about Part I please visit
  This site includes audio clips from the live performances.
  Please let me know if you'd be interested in receiving a DVD of Part I from this project. I would love Eyes and Ears to be considered for your show in December.
  Looking forward,
  (Baltimore, MD)
