"Microscopic Horrors" Loop Music Microscopy DVD Now Available Digitally

Last year I announced the availability of a new experimental music video 
DVD that I produced, entitled "Microscopic Horrors."  This was a loop 
music video - partly educational and partly a parody of 50's sci-fi / 
horror flicks - of live microscopic organisms that I shot with my USB 
enabled microscope at 400X magnification, and then added music from my CD 
"Places" as the soundtrack.  I gave away a bunch of these little suckers 
at Y2K4, and also sent free copies to about 15 of you on this list.

I posted some small, lower quality samples of this DVD to the Looper's 
Delight shortly after releasing the DVD, but very recently I finally 
ripped the entire DVD to mpeg and then converted to smaller Windows Media 
and Real Media formats. So, here's the whole thing available for download!

Also, you can find out more about the DVD here: 

"I haven't found anything similar, which is kind of a surprise. It is a 
cool topic. I really enjoyed your video work. It reminded me oddly of 
something from Lovecraft-- moving gelatinous shapes mounted on walls-- 
very cool!" (Thomas Park, Mystified, www.mystifiedmusic.com)

"Wonderful, and very creative" (Michael Peters, Musician and Artist, 

"This film will move the viewer at one level or another rather than 
leaving a sense of blasť', but only those who share Hartung's sense of the 
absurd and understand his humor will truly 'get it'" (Grant Keely, 
Musician/Writer/InfoTech Deviant) 

I enjoyed making this video so much, that I hope to produce a "Microscopic 
Horrors II" next spring, and this time I'd like to get some of you 
involved in composing your own loop music as components of the soundtrack. 
 I think some of you might get a kick out of writing music to videos of 
bizarre microscopic organisms.
