Technical, aesthetic and philosophical issues around the expansion of computer music practice to include video are considered with respect to the author's video work Early Evening, Summer, Deganwy. An overview of the CD works of Japanese sound artist Yasunao Tone is used to highlight the issues surrounding the technologies for media recording and playback. This paper then describes and advocates a working process that eschews the representation of recorded phenomena in favour of the use of abstracted and noise-like materials in a work to form a presentation. Along with a discussion of the philosophical underpinnings of this work, a framework for understanding the use of 'noise' in sonic arts practice is provided.
