Background:
"Winter Notebook" was broadcast on "Artist's Showcase" along with "Lines of Force." Both works were created by video and sound artist Bob Snyder. New Television Workshop appears to have presented but not produced the works.

Scope:
"Winter Notebook" appears on several videos with another work by Bob Snyder, entitled "Lines of Force." These include a 2" master, a Betacam SP preservation master, and VHS and 3/4" screening copies.

"Winter Notebook" is an eleven-minute-long work filled with electronic effects and treatments. In a predominantly blue-and-green palette, gridlike images of dots and lines appear, overlapping one another and floating through the screen. Vertical and horizontal shapes are overlaid. No credit information accompanies the work.

An electronic musical score also by artist Bob Snyder accompanies the work. Shifts in the colors and movement of the images synchronize with dramatic musical changes.
