In which a piece of music loses its meaning and becomes something else

The more I watch this, the more unpleasant do I find it. Though I suppose if you were unfamiliar with the music the experience would be quite different. But it can hardly be because McQueen didn't know. There again, it's only a movie sound track.

I couldn't agree more - why did he choose the theme of Schindlers List? Could he seriously not know?
The hologram is eerie and beautiful and he could have taken any other music available, Chopin, Debussy, who knows, Sakamoto, Coldplay whatever.
Why this music? To provoke more discussion? Does he actually have a message hidden between the Theme of Schindlers List and Kate Moss floating in chiffon?
If yes, I don't get it.

Well, this is not just the theme of Schindlers List. But let's disregards the music. What was that show about? A possible use of a thousand used handkerchiefs bought at a yard sale? Or what?

Just for underdressed heathens, please.

There is a redundant "s" over there. Oh heck.
