I found this video on Roger Bourland's blog. The unnamed composer of the music for this film about natural history by Jan Svankmajer wrote a lively group of variations on a 12-tone theme, using dances to correspond to each group of creatures from the animal kingdom. I'd love to know who wrote the music.
(Did anyone else notice that the unnamed composer seems to have become a kind of recurring theme in many of these blog posts?)
Svankmajer's other films on youtube, like this one, are also fantastic, in the literal sense of the word.
