An internet browser by Stanza.
V1. 2001- 2002
Subfusion makes collages, cut out from the sections of the web, where sounds and images appear relevant to your search. This software fuses sound and images, constantly making collages and chopping them up again.It has a fully integrated generative audio visual system built into it. The sounds are generative, spliced, chopped and looped. Subfusion is the abstracted noise based visual destruction of the browser, the desktop, and the interface.
You enter words and the software brings back images and sounds and mashes them up as a collage a media visualisation. This browser acts like a audio visual thesaurus. The top search field looks for images. Type in words and pictures appear. Use the slider to control various aspects of the images, ie their size or movement and speed. The lower search field looks for sounds online, and the switched make these sounds mix together.

Thanks to all those who I have asked for technical advice on this project. Thanks most to 'atom oil' for gluing it together.
