"Sound is like the air. It surrounds you all your life. It is as intangible as fire, and as powerful. Its effect is profound. - it moves in your mind, and through your body as your blood does, changing your body states, changing your inner time. We think we make music. It makes us, more mysteriously. Music moves in each person differently. We are like gongs or flutes which a particular pulsing of the air can set into vibration - the most delicate of instruments."

A series of visuals [*] produced by Mlikes, along the lines of ‘remix culture’. She has made use of found footage such as vintage animations and early abstract animations.
The visuals are the result of some kind of free video-montage, involving deconstruction and re-arrangement, loosely similar to the way musicians make music by means of sampling and rearranging sounds.
