"In a variety of ways, 'Zounk!' plays on the history of abstract art, harboring references to Hans Richter’s geometries of motion from the 1920s, Piet Mondrian’s right-angled color compositions, and Oskar Fischinger’s abstract film music. Billy Roisz likes to produce her works using her own, homemade picture-manipulation apparatuses, trusting the logic, the independent existence of the machines. 'Zounk!' is a good example of the charm of low-threshold aleatori: Roisz generates her visual material with analogue techniques, using video mixer and transducer—she first switches to digital in the video montage. The result is an idiosyncratic mix of brutality and tenderness: image-sound art rising like a bonfire for people with modern nerves." - Stefan Grissemann
