Mostly on black space, the figures in blue perform a very compact and jewel-like opera in surreal form to Erik Satie's piano music.

Wondrous expression of 19th century optimism of science, art, and invention with sardonically surrealistic imagery reflecting Satie's dadaistic humor, Perfect matching of musical theory with cinematic vision.

Beautifully surreal animation whose graphics and rhythms only sometimes match Satie's sublime music.

beautiful, whimsical fun!

I love this musical score, now I know where to find it. Remembrances of Terry Gilliams early work comes to mind, if when he was doing Monty Pythons Stop animation nowadays as a somewhat more serious artist. As the score is so is this work, beautifully haunting, yet simply naive. Glad I watched it.
