Inspired by NASA's 'Gradient Sun', this video re-envisions stabilized video of a Vancouver UFO recorded at a location where precognitive dreams instructed a contactee when UFOs would appear for taping. Gradient filters reportedly help scientists trace light emissions from luminous bodies by intensifying the contrast between foreground and background objects on video. A gradient represents a change in value over distance in one direction such as the slope of a curve appearing on a graph. The soundtrack was composed and performed live using a Korg Monotribe analog synthesizer via the MTribe control interface, both MIDIpal-sequenced and Shruthi-1 SMR-4-filtered. Film editor and sound designer Walter Murch once told Salon.com how, "[Synthesized tuned helicopter blade sound used in] the beginning of the film [Apocalypse Now] was a trigger for the psychic dimension."
