Video showing the making, and melting, of “Texas City and Galveston, 2517.” The video is composed of time-lapse photography, photo-stills, and video. The musical accompaniment for the composition is Shostakovich's 8th string quartet, 3rd movement, layered on top of sounds that were recorded on-site including a melancholic train whistle captured early one morning. The 8th quartet is said to be a suicide note composed shortly after the death of the composer's wife, as well as an dedication to victims of fascism.
