Sans soleil

"One technique for the sleepless advises not thinking in words, just in images; supposedly concentrating your mind on the visual rather than the linguistic will hasten your descent into dreams." - Colin Marshall

"These still exist in the visitor's time, but nobody knows what they mean anymore, so he has been sent into the past to unlock their secrets. The people of the future have no common ground with the music. They hope their explorer can do for them what Krasna's friend's machine can do: supply the subjectivity that allows a viewer (or a listener) to connect directly with an objective image (or song)." - Henry Sheehan
