the garbage that goes on in most
secular music have an alterna

. Dworak said some people do
complain that Christian music
should be distinctively different.
"Music is cultural, and the ryr
ics are usually the problem,"
Dworak said. "The music style
itself isn't We do have some prob

of the people I talk to are very
positive .about it."
"Dworak said the music has
particularly appealed to college
students. The downtown store is
geared toward that mar ket.
"Maranatha is to reach the com

offer this community music, books
and gifts in the Christian market.
We are also interested in reach

wasn't a desire and an outreach
we wish to have."

"Koyanr.bqatsi," playing at the
Sheldon Film Theater Saturday
through Monday, leaves no corner
of the screen untouched and no
corner of its viewers' minds un
daunted. It is technically and,
more importantly, thematically
brilliant. It is an all-out visual
assault that can leave an audience
I hated it. But that, appears,
is the desired reaction.
"Koyaanisqatsi," in Hopi, means
1. crazy life, 2. life disintegrating,
3. life in turmoil, 4. life out of bal
ance, 5. a state of life that calls for
another way of living.
After an introductory segment
in the Southwest United States,
which portrays the harmony and
balance of nature's earth, rocket
launch explosion propels the film
into humanity's chaotic earth. Ac
celerated motion zips people, cars,
industrial machines and war
machines around in a dizzying
sequence of images that defies
equilibrium, yet ring3 of truth.
Speeding up the film is less an
exaggeration than an underline.
Director Godfrey Reggio said in
a recent interview that he wanted
this' film to "show ordinary life
from another point of view." Ee
wanted to bring to attention those
ordinary things which seem nor
mal because we are used to them,
when in fact our headlong daily
industrial rush is anything but
normal seen here, it is perverse.
Equally impressive, and there
fore oppressive, is the film's music,
written by Philip Glass. It coin
cides, clashes and crashes with
the visual images. A strong bass
length of rope and stage hands
tried to tackle Walt. Walt spinned
and twisted like a tornado and
knocked Winkydink's dentures
from his mouth. The music played
and McDugan rose from his car
peted seat and was pushed back
by the throng of followers. Walt
escaped out the side fire door,
and McDugan was smashed by,
greed. Walt escaped again, Mc
Dugan was caught in the ferocity
voice chants "Koyaanisqatsi" as
clouds and waves break over the
cliffs and breakers of the South
west, while strings and horns harp
and squawk as assembly line
workers pound out an automoble.
"Koyaanisqatsi" i3 not a plea
sant film, if one considers it social
commentary. Its images could
seduce a viewer capable of ignor
ing that commmentary, though
