dance in your nightmare



as a comment about this video said, sometimes the algorithms get it right.  i've been on a youtube jag these past several nights, watching/listening to music, theoretical physicists, poetry readings etc etc. & last night this song/video was the next up in my feed.  i've watched this video several times in a row, each time i've gone to youtube.  i love the haunting depression of the music, these deeply alienating synths, the slow thump of the beat.  there is a dreamlike quality, nay, a nightmare of horror of the images.  would it were like death perhaps we could accept our oblivion with more grace?  fuck me.  these dancers, their movements, their choreography, are deeply in synch with the sadness of the tune.  i know i'm late to the game.  this song/video is about 5 years old, but damn!  this is art for our present age.  i'm enthralled, in love, and in horror of this work.  for once the algorithms did get it right, i fucking love this piece.
