Hollis Frampton, Maxwell's Demon, 1968 (3 min)
Watching WVLNT is simply weird. I can understand why Snow remade Wavelength (to provide easy access to others), but this version loses the original flavour; would be like saying black olives and plums are similar enough based on similar colour and one is simply larger in size. This version is as though Snow hacked Wavelength into at least two sections, layered them on top of each other, and playing at the same time. It could not be directly in half and using all the footage, since, and I know I am bad with math, 15 + 15 = 30, not almost 43. One other majour difference is this version does not fall silent at the end, i.e. the noise (maybe some kind of sine oscillator) stops at 41:51 of the original version and there is only white noise (which begins to sound like water).
With all that said, I really enjoyed this version, as its own entity. I felt this film oozed a fulfilling experience in the sense of density (but I was most interested the with duration in the original).
