Participants were invited to either play one of two instances of Super Mario Bros. that were mixed together on one screen by a Videonics MXPro video mixer. A second video mixer generated mixed this composite double-game with a feedback loop. The audio was run through Boss DD2 and DD7 pedals and a pitch-shifting sampler. Participants could either choose to play the game or manipulate the sound and image.
