i've seen the introduction video and i have to say i really like the idea... a tubular flight and if u don't mind i relax and loose my imagination, i'll tell what i see there... it could be that the tubular flight is mike's own flight along his time, not only childhood (almost sure a psychoanalyzer could think his main symbol for himself is a bent tubular bell... )
the video starts with the bell in a bubble coming on earth to a desert, stormy images (for a stormy brain) but the bell in the drop of rain waters the arid land and makes the seed grow... while growing, the journey goes on across that forest (ommadawn's forest!! ) and cities, villages, skies, days and night lights until it arrived at the desert again and begins to move back through waves and clouds... a brighter and calmer mood then... and goes back until reaching the beach from where it is launched up to the sky.
could be that the bell comes to earth to make a review flight over these thirty years and then, when at last reaches a brighter place on that beautiful beach, goes up into the sky again.
i see kind'a cycle being completed along the video.
about the music for the moment i'd like just to make a comment... it's funny...there is a moment in which the bell appears flying like the big worrying airship in mvr, and there's a sound in the mix that i'd say is the same of the airship when it appears threatening some times round the desert... but i'm not completely sure, maybe someone could check it...
i've enjoyed watching it inspite of the bad quality of both images and sound.
...morning and evening i'm flying, i'm dreaming...
