I have watched Dog Star Man in its entirety at least twice. The first time was set to Radiohead’s “A Moon Shaped Pool” and the most recent time was set to Boards of Canada’s “Music Has the Right to Children.” Both experiences were a beauty overload. I still don’t know what breed the dog is, or the dog’s importance to the death to birth narrative of the plot, but maybe I’ll figure it out next time.
Rewatched all of Dog Star Man, this time with Sonic Youth's "Sonic Death" in a loop. I know it's supposed to be completely silent, but frankly, this film syncs with EVERYTHING. Previous incarnations of this experiment include but is not limited to: Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Merzbow, Fantomas, Mike Patton's solo audio recordings, and Francis Dhomont. Every new soundtrack helps reveal new imagery.
