1 NOISE SYMPHONY
When Max Understood begins, we see Max standing alone in a dark space. Then, we see him react to being overwhelmed by a barrage of common environmental sounds. No dialogue occurs during this scene; rather, we see his physical reactions and hear vocalizations.

2 MEET MAX AND MACHINE
Max picks up his president machine toy and begins pressing buttons in a curious way. The song that follows is an attempt to capture the spirit of Max in music. The piece is repetitive and presents a metaphor for math. In order to control the sound of the president machine, most of its noises were recorded and then assigned to unique keys on a MIDI keyboard using sampling software.
