Oh this is so beautiful! I think of a 21th century Sound of Music viewing 
and listen to this. Not getting into any deep thoughts about the inner 
meaning od Sound of Music though. This one "hell.mov" ought to become a 
classic too.

Thanks for sharing. And regarding the "erhu" thread. I sometimes have 
problem reading the postings that Alan does now and then. I have hard 
catching up on understanding these pieces- so to the grade that I have 
choosen another reading of them. I read them not trying to understand them 
at all. They often pushes a feeling against me that brings very different 
sensations to me. The feelings may vary between inspirational, sound 
sensation, image sensation, movement sensation, big nothing, and more. For 
me its very essential that Alan lets these pieces flow thru these list... in 
fact this is one of the reasons I wanna subscribe to this list.

Thanks for sharing, Alan.... and also a shout out to everyone - share more! 
It is very inspirational to get to know each others works.
