Death of An Orchestra [Hi Res] by snakebeings
Artist: snakebeings
A coin operated mechanical orchestra meet their destruction when a disgruntled customer objects to their money making scheme. The destruction of the orchestra has an imploding effect on the film reality of the customer showing the co-dependence of viewer and screen. summary of film The grotesque form of the Pixilated customer arriving at a corner shop begins The Death of an Orchestra in which the inhabitants of a mysterious mechanical coin operated theatre use a variety of schemes to rob the passer-by of their money. The stopmotion puppets offer of a free coin entices the customer to spend more to view increasingly shorter performances of their ramshackle music. When the puppets resort to obvious begging tactics the hideous customer, who was at first enchanted by their magical spectacle, becomes angry and destroys the orchestra, finding their destruction means the end of his own existence as the curtains simultaneously close on both viewer and performer.
