Music…gives wings to the mind, a soul to the universe, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, a life to everything.

Quantum Soul

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you’ve reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.
~ Kahlil Gibran ~

Single-Minded-Sitting

A fish in the ocean can’t see that birds are flying in the sky.
Coming, going, the waterbirds
don’t leave a trace, don’t follow a path.
In the great way of going beyond, no endeavor is complete without being one with myriad things.
This is ocean mudra samadhi.

Man with a Movie Camera (1929-2003)

Director: Dziga Vertov
Producer: Dziga Vertov
Genre: Documentary / Independent Film / Avant-garde
Country: Russia
Language: None / RU / EN subtitles

Dziga Vertov’s Man With A Movie Camera is considered one of the most innovative and influential films of the silent era. Vertov proclaimed the primacy of camera “Kino-Eye” over the human eye. The camera lens was a machine that could be perfected infinitely to grasp the world in its entirety and organize visual chaos into a coherent, objective picture.

Startlingly modern, this film utilizes a groundbreaking style of rapid editing and incorporates innumerable other cinematic effects to create a work of amazing power and energy. This film is famous for the range of cinematic techniques Vertov invents, deploys or develops, such as double exposure, fast motion, slow motion, freeze frames, jump cuts, split screens, Dutch angles, extreme close-ups, tracking shots, footage played backwards, stop motion animations and a self-reflexive style.

The film was released with a soundtrack composed by Jason Swinscoe and performed by the British jazz and electronic outfit The Cinematic Orchestra.

In the 2012 Sight and Sound poll, film critics voted Man with a Movie Camera the 8th best film ever made.
