The model of sound-image relations proposed by Soviet filmmakers Eisenstein, Pudovkin and Alexandrov in The Sound Film: A Statement from the USSR was formulated as a reaction to the introduction of synchronous sound. This chapter discusses a hip-hop's model of organised sound that serves to highlight the logic of appropriation proposed by scratch video. If the call for an art of organised sound was realised sonically in the musique concrete experiments of the 1940s and 1950s, it was video than film that finally provided the medium in which the composers' ideas took an audiovisual form. Both the cultural position of scratch in the 1980s and the intervention made by the scratchers may be usefully articulated through reference to Deleuze and Guattari's concept of the refrain.
