De Boer filmed George van Dam playing Béla Bartók’s sonata for violin solo, Presto, six times. She gave him the sound recordings and asked him to reconstruct the Bartók piece to perfection. Afterwards, she synchronized the image to this soundtrack. In allowing the audio sequence to dictate the image, De Boer inverts the traditional dominance of image over sound in cinema.
