The Beat And The Chorus At The Same Time asks the question “how do we see?” questioning assumptions about perception through a constructed layering within both images and space. The title references the famed musician Rahzel, and his ability to sing while beatboxing simultaneously. In the same way that the historical stereoscopic image would align two slightly different images to give the illusion of depth, Rahzel’s ability to break down and distinguish the processes of melody and beat offers an illusion of a multiplicity of voices. The Beat And The Chorus At The Same Time is meant to deconstruct and reflect on the everyday sensory experience of sight.
