Engram (Optical Sound #001) (2 min., 2013, Spain)
This video was shot with an iPod Touch using 8 mm app. It's part of a series called This is not cinema that recreates experimental cinema aesthetics using lo-fi digital video tools. Images
are just a light bulb going on and off. The sound was generated from the frames, converting them first to .raw and then to .aiff. It's not 'optical sound', obviously, but it's a digital technique based
on the same idea (you see what you hear), and the resulting sounds are similar to those from
optical sound experimental films. Engram is a neuropsychology term, a hypothetical means
by which memory traces are stored as biophysical or biochemical changes in the brain in response to external stimuli.
