Image generates sound in video works by Christian Marclay interpreted by ensemble MAZE.

In The Bell and The Glass (2003), Marclay juxtaposes two of Philadelphia’s famous icons: the Liberty Bell and Marcel Duchamp’s The Large Glass. Marclay used original as well as found footage, including clips from Hollywood movies. In Screen Play (2005) black-and-white images are overlaid with brightly colored animated graphics which refer to musical notation and suggest tone, energy, rhythm, dynamics and tempo.
