synnack init.system is a video anthology exploring themes of creation, revelation, demise and catharsis. Set to tracks from synnack's "v2" release, init.system is split into 3 acts; each focused on a different phase of an unknown protagonist's journey. Adolescent trauma, abnormal curiosity with familiar objects, and pseudo-spiritual revelation are highlighted in Act I "init.being". Act I features videos for "Ants in the Water", "L3D", and "Nauvoo" and introduces the 3 main characters and the rising tensions between them. In Act II, "init.descent", these tensions escalate to a violent and destructive outcome in videos for "Her Room" and "Underneath Outside". The anthology concludes in Act III "init.restart" which is set to "Rize (5mg)" and provides a hallucinatory abstraction meant to represent a moment of twilight just after the protagonist's ultimate end.

The footage used in init.sytsem was shot in HD and edited in 2008-2009 by Jennifer McClain of 0xf8 Studios with final edits in early 2010. The video collaboration between McClain and synnack began in 2007 to create installation-like environments using Cycling 74's Max/MSP/Jitter to be used for the synnack live performances. This early work focuses on abstract narrative, an evolving cinematography that exposes and examines the boundary between eye-candy and film. Init.system leverages these techniques to combine classical mythological themes with chance methodologies in much the same way the synnack performances contain generated custom and narrative footage.
