"Frampton wsa especially fascinated by Eisenstein's theory of 'vertical montage,' the notion that filmic structure could be built not only horizontally (sequentially), like a melody, but vertically, like a chord. In the MINDFALL sections of "Magellan" Frampton used desynchronized sound, along with super-imposition and a complex editing structure, to approach the possibility of vertical montage" Harvey Nosowitz
