Discordant sound with discordant images. There's a certain appeal to both, but they get grating after a while.

Inventive dis-association of sound and image. The brain tries to connect them, ultimately fails and accepts each as its own entity. The film has a Japanese flavor to it, inky images suggesting a flock of crows in flights. Though I can't help but scoff a little at the notion that this music was "composed". No, no it fucking wasn't.
