This is the creation and eventual destruction of the universe. With music by Tool.
Terrence Malickâs original idea for âTree of Lifeâ was a project called âQasida,â or âQâ for short. It was to be a story about the origins of life and featured a âsleeping god, underwater, dreaming of the origins of the universe, starting with the big bang and moving forward, as fluorescent fish swam into the deityâs nostrils.â I wasnât trying to recreate this idea, as that would be too difficult. So I figured Iâd just use the trippy parts of âTree of Lifeâ and sync it up to some Tool.
Toolâs album â10000 Daysâ has a hidden track, go Google it if you donât know anything. Itâs a pretty awesome track and it seemed to fit well with the visuals.
Cut down âTree of Lifeâ to focus just on the creation and destruction of the universe. Overlaid Tool tracks and synced myself. The sync I made differs slightly from the ones youâll find on YouTube.
It is strongly suggested you watch this twice. The first time without lyrics (on Vimeo or DVD) and then with lyrics (on DVD). And smoke a joint or two.
âThe Fountainâ for a couple shots.
