escalate nirvana

This is the start of an experiment i did that takes a collection of found movie clips and looks at how small events can escalate into big ones; and the how time and distance turns big events into small events which in turn escalate into big ones again.

The music is all from the found videos (mostly from and the arrangement in the beginning and end is from I couldn’t find all the pieces I wanted though and generating the content by hand would have been against the nature of the piece. So lets call this version 1 =).

Also, special thanks to Nisma and Allison for their modeling time with this.
