All-time favourite music video

I just discovered this and can’t get enough of it, watching it over and over again, seeing new odd little details each time …

What if techno was around in the 1910s and ’20s? What if Louis Feuillade and Fritz Lang got together to make the ultimate crime serial and shot a scene in a nightclub where Fantomas and Dr. Mabuse met to plan their ultimate crime, and Judex slipped in the back door to foil them?

This is what it might have been like …

I’ve tried every kind of Google search I can think of, and have come up with almost no information about this apparently one-off project, though searching the individual names of the musicians does come up with a range of performance pieces, installations and experimental videos. We can only hope that they continue with Orkestra Obsolete.
