The sound of Authentic Sound Effects is taken from LP recordings marketed as "authentic recordings from the real world."

Setting these sounds against my own selection of images presents the possibility of constructing and questioning ideas of authenticity of visual relationships to sound recordings.

Notions of truth and authenticity are filtered through perceptual disjunctions that engage with personal memory and collective memory as antagonisms of authority.
