You could also watch Early Abstractions with
soundtrack by the Fugs. He was known to show it with
their first album as a soundtrack, too. There is also
the noise and percussive track version that is on the
video release from Mystic Fire.

Yes, Zorn's performance of INAUGURATION and other
films by Anger is with permission of the maker. The
first time that he did this at Anthology, maybe back
in 2000 or 2001 (can't remember) Anger was present and
told Zorn that he wanted to replace the soundtracks
with these new compositions. It never happened, but
Zorn's soundtrack for Eaux is, I think, very well
considered and lovely. I re-watched Invocation last
week and hope that no one, not even Kenneth, ever
replaces the Jagger soundtrack. Jagger at his best!
