I recently got a chance to view this at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, it was a real treat to see. It was projected on to the wall and I honestly don't think this film would translate that well outside of a theater on a small TV screen. It was funny to think that Tony Conrad has watched this film countless times, he watched it with us and didn't leave. He said his favorite parts are the ones with more subtle flickering and not the parts where it flickers very fast (People will often hallucinate during these parts).
I talked with Tony Conrad about getting a copy of this film; he said he is working with his son who is a computer programmer to recreate the film digitally into a computer program, this is pretty smart because it would be a very small download as the only thing that would really take up space is the soundtrack. The soundtrack is composed by Tony Conrad and he said that he built his own synthesizer just for the film's score.
