Related to unsynchronized: synchronising


(sing′krŏ-nīz″) [Gr. synchronizein, to be contemporary with],


To coordinate the timing of two or more events or processes. In electrical cardioversion, for example, a shock to the heart is delivered when an R wave is detected on a cardiac monitor. Synchronized shocks are used to treat rhythms such as atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, or supraventricular tachycardia, in which QRS complexes are recognizable. In these arrhythmias, unsynchronized shocks might induce ventricular fibrillation.

Although unsynchronized with Edwards's rethinking of the early works, Keith Polk continues with Isaac's critical years just before 1485 and not long after 1490, concentrating on stylistic traits in the four-voice secular music, which reveal a new aesthetic and "revolutionary approach to composition" (p.
Indeed, Artaud's appreciation of Clair's unsynchronized sound film largely extended into cinema his own concept of mise-en-scene as an aggregate of audiovisual components that (like Clair's sounds in relation to his visuals) were to impact on and collide with one another such that "instead of serving as a decoration, an accompaniment of a thought, [each component] instead causes its movement, directs it, destroys it, or changes it completely." (30) Consequently, and despite the fact that the Theater of Cruelty was founded in opposition to an emergent multimedia spectacle, Artaud was by no means opposed to electronic media.
