"a document of Pengo's 5th live performance ... The performance consisted of a live musical accompaniment to the first 31 minutes of Alejandro Jodorowsky's film The Holy Mountain.

The first 31 minutes of The Holy Mountain are without dialog. This is the section of the film they chose to play along with. This portion of the film is also considerably less linear then the rest of the film. This perfectly suited Pengo's music making aesthetic. The only thing constant is continualchange. There are recurring symbols in the film that pass by so fast that they are almost subliminal to the viewer."
