The work A1B2C3 is based on the concept to create a video my means of a minimum of parameters. A regular, white grid on blue ground structures the screen. It moves at four different rates orthogonally to the left, to the right, up and down. All parameters of the audio-visual composition are based on the data of the display formats of digital video: 720 x 576. This data or its multiple or dividers define speed and length of the animation. The soundtrack, composed by Bernhard Lang, follows the same logic: the frequencies of a synthetically generated square sound are modulated on the basis of this data.
