Four sequences in four sections of a variety of sound/noise/music instruments being played in the light beam of a projector, including their own shadows and the previous section of the same sequence being projected (B&W alternating positive and negative). This material having then been edited into shots of between one and six seconds in length, randomly, but without repetition, reconstructed, printed and cut onto two reels. The (twin screen/speaker) projection is effectively a cinematic improvised music concert. - R.G
