VS-Process by Lia is an impressive portrayal of how picture and sound can drive each other. This work employed as its raw material visual and acoustic elements that, after being coded by Lia, were processed further by her counterpart (sound: Bizz Circuits) on the acoustic level. The result then underwent additional visual development work. The exchange of computer files and processing of the information the contain occupies the foreground, and the final product illustrates this creative process. VS-Process therefore goes beyond visual representation of a musical idea or setting a visual representation to music. On the contrary this work was created, as indicated by its title, through opposition.

At the same time the initial images resemble the soundtrack of a film strip or a computer program's visual translation of sound waves. At first geometric shapes move up and down the picture, and after a while they begin to overlap more and more. The individual visual elements are remixed arrows and triangles are drawn out and then, leaving their straight lines of movement, spread across the picture in clusters. Black and white is complemented with some red.
