Very strange, artsy film - it flowed really well with the music in ways that felt random, yet coherent - the colors and b/w were used to great effect to bolster the music when it got strong, but also cool down the tone when the music was soft. For seem reason it made me think of cell division and DNA replication. The most intriguing part to me was the straight white lines - they seemed like beams of light, but I'm assuming that they were painted. So I'm curious as to how it was made. Lots of it was just painting on the film strip, in varying degrees of watercolor vs. more acrylic(?) paint. Again the choice of colors was neat, featuring mostly reds to keep the energy up - at times it looked like lava and I'm now sure who they did that. Was this music pre-made or written for this?
