scan_rate is inspired by Steve Reich's early phase shifting experiments with tape loops. In scan_rate, segments of a video image are loaded across several pop-up windows while differing bandwidth allocations for each window creates delays. As the video loops across the windows, the audio shifts in and out of sync.
scan_rate takes it cues from the early phase experiments with tape loops by steve reich. in this work the segments of a complete video image are loaded into memory simultaneously while the bandwidth allocation introduces delays and stutters in the sync. the deep resonance of the audio begins to expand and distort in ways not present in single or even coupled segments. the bands of filmic image sustain our watching with a mesmic looping and, occasionally, moments of cohesion occur...
