Documentary Film: Koyaanisqatsi

I saw this documentary on cable TV tonight. I was immediately fascinated by the artistic approach to this "documentary". I love this kind of stuff.

This film was visually amazing, I can only imagine how long it took to compile and edit all of the video. And I wonder about the music, was it orginally composed, or was it a smattering of electic artists that the film maker threw together?
