American Business Adventures

The connection between oil and U.S. foreign policy should be obvious already. This simply hits that nail into the coffin one more time.

Originally produced in 2002, it seems appropriate to re-introduce this piece as Afghanistan continues to once again occupy the attention of the public, the media, and the powers that be.

This audiovisual collage piece was originally a backdrop video for a live electronic music performance of mine in april 2002. The recorded live music was relayered back onto the video and the whole thing tweaked and horked a little more.

The source material used is listed in the credits at the end of the video.
