A blast of ethno-Arctic wind causes us to lose the signal, revisit Karen, wait for the Marines and amplifies our collective Heartbeat from high atop the gleaming spire of a cathedral created with steel. Merge with the music of The Residents, Faust, Sonic Youth, Wayne County & The Electric Chairs, Ryuichi Sakamoto and David Sylvian!

* The picture above is of The Eskimo Nebula as seen through the Hubble Space Telescope credited to Andrew Fruchter. In 1787, astronomer William Herschel discovered the Eskimo Nebula. From the ground, NGC 2392 resembles a person's head surrounded by a parka hood. In 2000, the Hubble imaged the Eskimo Nebula. From space, the nebula displays gas clouds so complex they are not fully understood. The Eskimo Nebula is clearly a planetary nebula, and the gas seen above composed the outer layers of a Sun-like star only 10,000 years ago. The inner filaments visible above are being ejected by a strong wind of particles from the central star. The outer disk contains unusual light-year long orange filaments.
**Preparations For A Journey is documentary that accompanied the short film "Steel Cathedrals" on the Japanese-only laser-disc. The documentary follows David Sylvian's brief work with Polaroid montages, which lead to his book "Perspectives" and an exhibition at Hamiltons gallery in London. As always, you might want to pause the clip and allow it to load before viewing.
