The video recording of each musician captures three consecutive sessions. In the studio, DuBois instructed the musicians to play for six minutes per take, while capturing video at 240 frames per second. The edits of the takes, played back at 24 frames per second, result in three hours of screen playback. The sound then was algorithmically processed by DuBois using a custom “averaging” software, which yielded a rich audio track for each sitter that is continuously ambient and reverberant.
