This work was part of my 1988 MIT M.S. thesis Perceptual correspondences of abstract animation and synthetic sound. It is at first a 3D visualisation of synthetic sounds based on four types of audiovisual correspondences: spatial coincidence, temporal coincidence, volume/brightness, timbre/shape-color. Once created, the abstract objects, and consequently their associated sounds, have been used to compose the audiovisual work.

The original version was projected on a large screen (4 x 3 m.), with speakers placed at each corner of the screen in order to provide spatialized sound along both horizontal and vertical axes. This was possible by synchronizing two stereo digital players with a videotape player.
