" CANCEL / CREATE " c.2014 by Alexandro Santana, highlights the contingencies between sound and image. The pre-existing narrative sequence or storyline, after being removed or canceled from the last scenes of a Hollywood Film Noir, opens a space of intellection leaving the subject engaged in the search or creation of his or her own narrative. Music cancels the aural narrative of this film sequence allowing the new filmic text to harbour its own new-found meaning and hold the discourse in tension with itself, thus deconstructing the narrative codes at work in the original text. Or does it ? Do we read the visual text, by virtue of of its cinematographic qualities separately from the music or together with it ? Can these be separated ? Therefore, canceling one film and creating a new one ? Or, is the text irrevocably conflated in the new discourse ?
