While Brakhage's work is considered avant garde, his experiments with
movement, rhythm, making films without a camera and a non-narrative flow
in film is said to have had a profound influence on MTV-styled videos
and the works of film directors like Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, and
These were the films
that Sonic Youth improvised to:

Childhood: Section 1 (1967) 25 min
* Garden of Earthy
Delights (1981) 2.5 min
* The Dead (1960)
* The Wonder Ring
(1955) 4 min
* Dog Star Man, Part
II (1960) 6 min
