The composer Laurent Saïet, intrigued by the work of Chris Marker on memory and time, decided to look for a musical equivalent and suggested to videographers Sylvain Bélot, Gilbert Carsoux and Pascal Frament that they each work from his music on an experimental film inspired mainly by Marker’s best-known work: La jetée (1962).
In this project, where the music pre-exists the visual material, he also collaborated with Patrick Müller who mixed and did the spatial organisation of the music in 5.1 for the first presentations of the project in 2008-2009 (Instants Chavirés, Montreuil; La Clef cinema, Paris). After this, Instant T was showed at "Les Instants Vidéo" festival (Marseille) and Flexiff festival (Sydney) in 2010.
