Breaking the Beat is part of an ongoing investigation that relates music and image. In this work a Snare drum and Bass drum solo was created and to each beat was assigned one frame from Bettie Page’s archival movie “Presenting Lovely Betty Page”. The screen is split into two, vertically, on the left side appears the Bass drum beats and on the right the Snare drum one’s.
