    Berlin Remix is a demonstration artwork using the "Dada Processor", a generative documentary system being developed by the Generative Media Project at Simon Fraser University in Canada. The system will use encoded rule sets - called "style sheets" - to sequence and emit an ongoing series of short but distinct documentary "films" drawn from a database of video clips. Each clip has associated metadata tags that indicate the visual content, shot length, and emotive value). The style sheet rules will use this metadata to guide the construction of the sequences for each "film" that is emitted. The system is generative, and will require no user interaction to function. The Dada Processor video sequencing system works in tandem with a generative music system ("MuseBots") (Eigenfeldt 2016). Future versions of the work will be coupled with a generative soundscape system ("Audio Metaphor") (Thorogood & Pasquier 2015).
