Ballet Mécanique (1923–24) is currently viewed as one of the key works of early experimental cinema. The piece is part of Dadaist post-Cubist approach, and is created by Fernand Léger, in collaboration with Dudley Murphy. The piece premiered as a silent film, in 1924, the musical score is composed by George Antheil and added later.

Despite the very formal, modernist appearance, the work is full of delicious visual puns. Enjoy!

Pebbles Underground is focused on showcasing and promoting experimental, avant-garde, underground, and no-to-low budget projects by artist-humans from all over the world. Absurd, uncanny, witty, humorous, slow-video – all are welcomed, and loved. Pebbles Underground is an independent project not funded by any government or corporation, and we intend to keep it that way. Main source of funding is personal donations from humans organizing the project, who are artists themselves, and the main drive of the project is formed by the energy and involvement of the organizers, and the public.
