This is a musical/sound collage underscoring the title sequence of the feature length movie Public Lighting. “Prolific Canadian experimental filmmaker Mike Hoolboom’s Public Lighting (76 minutes 2004) surpasses even the beauty of his most recent work, Imitations of Life. Visually dense and hypnotic while brimming with the kind of penetrating ideas one associates with Godard, Public Lighting ponders the ways in which seeing and hearing affect human consciousness. While avant-garde fans will file it as essential viewing, the loveliness of this concise rumination should draw a wider audience in its current fest tour and through video distribution.”  Robert Koehler, Variety
