George Antheil - Ballet Mécanique

Here's George Antheil's score to Fernand Léger's experimental, dadaist, masterpiece Ballet Mécanique. The film is insane and the score is just as insane with the use of pianos, airplane propellers, sirens, electric bells among other things. This shit was way ahead of it's time and can be seen as the precursor to more experimental stuff that came out later.
