104th Street Curve

This is a video of the New York City Metro when it was above ground, up at 104th street. One of Edison's early films. Because it was originally a silent film, the audio has been superimposed. It is an original track of mine called "you are now About to Begin". It should be noted that I wrote the song before even seeing the film and made little effort to sync the two. What we see is a natural rhythm inherent in the movie, that shows itself at particular musical junctures in the song. I find this happens often when I am soundtracking video. It is a testament to the rhythm that is all around us in the natural world.
