Michael Gordon-Decasia

Decasia is a movie made of old nitrate film in varying stages of decay. Like black and white psychedelia. The deterioration gives the images a whole new life and rhythm.
It wouldn't be anywhere near as powerful without Michael Gordon's compositions, which can at times remind me of Steve Reich, Philip Glass, and/or Glenn Branca.
Terrifying to some, beautiful to others.
