A beautiful DIY music video using Fernand Leger's experimental short film Ballet Mechanique and the music of Casiotone For The Painfully Alone.

+ this site dedicated to George Antheil's original Ballet Mechanique score, which was envisioned for 16 player pianos playing four separate parts, four bass drums, three xylophones, a tam-tam, seven electric bells, a siren, three different-sized airplane propellers, and two human-played pianos. The composition would never successfully be performed as intended until 1999: 75 years after being written.
