Video: Koyaanisqatsi (1982) at 1552% speed. (The year 1552 marks the publication of "A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies," an account of the mistreatment of the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas)
Audio: "The Holy Egoism of Genius," from the 1999 Art of Noise album The Seduction of Claude Debussy.
*I have only the highest respect for Godfrey Reggio and Philip Glass (as well as The Art of Noise). This experiment is not meant in any way to diminish the emotional and atmospheric power of the original film, and I highly recommend anyone who has not seen it to do so before viewing this.
