Dream Song - Ministry
A truly inspirational piece of 'music' for me (one of the discerned lyrics was the source of another post), set to some Anime movie, I have no idea what really. The song itself is incredibly mosaic, featuring Bulgarian folk singers, Tibetan monk chants, loops of metallic percussion, etc. It amazes me how certain things, the material cityscapes bisected by the ethereal, the clockwork mechanizations revealed in an intervening atmosphere, the angelic forms - all of which were brought to my mind by this song for YEARS - all in complete isolation from the creator of this fusion of song and film, appear therein. It also calls to mind a momentary stillness in the midst of an enormous battle, where a seemingly-incidental "peak experience" is achieved in someone otherwise prepared (another unfinished screenplay; WWI-era, a student of Esoterica and Hermeticism enlists in the army and is swept into conflicts far beyond those of his brothers in arms).
