The Cosmic Bicycle (1972)

I*HATE*THIS*FILM's Vimeo channel is a source of many wonders.  As a fan of collagist Sätty's work, I was pretty excited to experience IHTF's most recent upload, The Cosmic Bicycle (1972), with art and design by Sätty and an early electronic score by Parasound, inc. a.k.a. Beaver & Krause.

Some screenshots:

The film is available for viewing and download at IHTF's aforementioned Vimeo site:

I'm drawn to the mix of the sinister and the whimsical (epitomized by the theme that accompanies shots of the bicycle as it makes its cosmic journey).
