Tuesday Tune: “Chimera Panorama” by Mirage in the Water

If you’ve ever wondered: “Is there a music video equivalent of weird fiction?”…I’ve got a Tuesday Tune for you!

The following ambient music from Mirage in the Water is overlaid onto clips from the bizarre 1973 Polish film The Hour-Glass Sanatorium. The film is about a man who undertakes a strange journey through the many rooms of the sanatorium where his father resides, who has stopped breathing but is still alive. Each room in the sanatorium conjures worlds composed of his memories, dreams and nightmares. The film is Adapted from a collection of short stories by Polish-Jewish writer Bruno Schulz.
