Sanborn made music videos “avant le lettre.” In Act III (with Dean Winkler), he uses Ampex Digital Optics Technology to develop the visual equivalent of a piece by Philip Glass. The images come from the nothingness of digital potentiality and complement the music. In collaboration with Kit Fitzgerald, he begins with his rhythmified studies on our lifeworld and world of things and in A Tribute to Nam June Paik, he anticipated a world of television with countless channels from all over the world.
