"Unseen Forces" is a 40 minute music film I made in 2004 that features fictionalized re-enactments of significant moments in the history of science. The video is preposterous and ridiculous! the music is confusing and oblique! enjoy!

"Unseen Forces" is subtitled in English for your convenience.
From 2002 to 2004 I did video projections and short films in a band called Sagan comprised of J Lesser, Blevin Blectum, Wobbly, and myself. We self-published a cd/dvd called Unseen Forces with help from Matmos' label Vague Terrain in 2004. The dvd was an attempt at blending Carl Sagan's educational pbs series "Cosmos" with Led Zeppelin's "The Song Remains The Same" via prosumer digital video.
I directed, shot, and edited the film. I also did the packaging design and authored the discs and designed the dvd menus.
