A pulsating sphere of pure colours without focus slowly turns into solidstructures: cristallized salts and dyes which are changing rhythm andstructure constantly between moving images. The interference of the two projectors and the number of layers in the film emulsion produces spatialdepth in intervals. The optical sound systems of the projectors are scanning the image structures. This noise is transformed by live-electronic treatments, creating a process which unfolds the musical space. The musical perspective is constantly shifting through the sound coordinates of 'Tabula Smaragdina': movements in the irridescent space of close and far away timbres decay into a deep, circulating silence. The variation of film-speed, direction and changing colours discovers a microcosmos of 15.000 single frames. Finally the projection ends in an abstract film strip which moves slowly upwards in a hardly recognisable speed.
