Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was filmed in synchronization with the kraftwerk album entitled The Mix. The movie and the CD should begin at exactly the same time, with the CD on repeat play. The pun involved with choice of music for this movie should be obvious. The alchemical symbolism is the standard fare, often involving analogy. I think the music heightens the illuminative or "magical" element in film making, the musical beat being essentially a Water elemental quality. I haven't tried any other Kraftwerk CD's, but it is common for multiple albums to be used in making these movies.

This album was remixed in synchronization with Suspiria, also a "kraft" movie.

The first Harry Potter movie, entitled Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, is a Smashing Pumpkins movie. The synchnchronization start point is on the first appearance of imagery in the movie, just as Private Drive first begins to appear. There are many movies from this same general era made to The Smashing Pumpkins.

Albums confirmed:

Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
Siamese Dream

The third Harry Potter movie, entitled Harry Potter and the Prisoner from Azkaban, is an AC/DC movie, and the synchronization start point is the first flash of Harry Potter's wand at the beginning of the movie.

Albums confirmed:

Back In Black
For Those About To Rock

Okay, I think you're going to have to explain this one better. I've got the books. I've read the books. The movie came from the books.

Is this a new game where you pick albums and see which ones synch with a movie?

It works with Barbara Streisand's "Best of Broadway" album too.

If you do enough drugs.

is this something akin to The Wizard of Oz and Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon?


for those of you that don't this one, if you start Dark Side at the third roar of the MGM lion, the movie is eerily synched with the album.

there is no doubt that the dark side was written and produced with wizard of oz in mind.

some things to consider:

the movie starts out in black and white and changes to color.
the album cover had white light entering a prism and coming out in color
also, the first song of side two is money. the ch-ching of the song happens as the door opens to reveal the world of color. this has been said to be a metaphor for the way color in films will result in more money for the studios.

the line run rabbit run happens as dorothy is running from the storm

the line balanced on the biggest wave happens as dorothy is balancing on a fence

the line "you don't know which is which" happens as the wicked witch of the west is face to face with glenda, the good which of the north

the chattering throughout the album is fairly well synched up to different people chattering in the movie, most notably in the land of the little people.

the song the great gig in the sky? yup, during the tornado scene. the woman's vocals seem to change with the moving twister.

the line "the lunatic is on the grass" appears as the scarecrow is dancing like a nutcase on the grass, off the yellow brick road.

the album ends with a beating heart. at the exact moment the heart starts to beat, Dorothy leans in to listen to the tin man's chest.

there are others. if you like floyd, dark side, the wizard of oz, or simply like a good freak out, I highly suggest trying this out.

a well stocked bong doesn't hurt but isn't necessary.

Being an avid fan of KW, I'm very curious about the topic.

Could you please explain, in a great deal of more detail, what the "syncronisation" involved?

kalki, I thought the same thing before and after watching the wizard of oz/dark side combo. still think it might be a freaky coincidence but I suggest you try it out yourself and you will be fairly amazed at the many coincidences.

some more coincidences:
Chimes and Bells start ringing as the Wicked Witch appears riding her bicycle.
During the 'Time' guitar solo, the fortune teller's sign is shown with the words "Past Present and Future"

Side 1 of the album (vinyl) is exactly as long as the black & white portion of the film

Incidents in 'Us and Them':
The ballerinas enter on 'Us, us, us, us'
One ballerina seems to lip sync 'ordinary men'
Three men enter on 'Me, me, me'
One kid's jerking motions are in sync with the music
'Forward he cried' is sung as Dorothy looks turns to face forward
The Wicked Witch appears on 'Black, black'
On 'Blue, blue, blue,' the camera switches to Dorothy (in her blue dress)
The Witch is up a the platform on 'Up, up' and then walks down on 'Down, down, down'
As 'And in the End' is sung, the Wicked Witch of the East disappears
On 'Out, out, out,' the good Witch of the North leaves

'Brain Damage' plays as the Scarecrow sings 'If I Only Had a Brain'

Good call Aelita!!
Trans Europe Express is a wonderfully evocative track, for me at any rate!!

*goes off to watch the Wizard of Oz, and crank up the Floyd*

I've got to try this, hehe...


On Harry Potter though, I think John Williams' themes do it perfect justice. The first two movies were pretty much exactly what I saw in my head as I read the books. Wasn't as thrilled with the third, despite how much critics loved it (regular clothes???) but still great. Can't wait for that new book to come out...I'll be at Wal-Mart at midnight again, hehe....

I think I agree.

We could probably do it with the Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour." Heck, I could probably do it with any of my Willie Nelson albums (okay, that's my dark secret. I like Willie Nelson. So sue me (g).)

It'd be darn amusing to figure out the same thing with, say, a Jeff Foxworthy comedy album or a Muppets/Sesame Street album.

the pink floyd and wizard of oz one has actually been made into a DVD which I would love to try and get my hands on from somewhere just to check it out. It's called dark side of the rainbow.

The Pink Floyd thing is freaking spooky! I d/l it with kazaa, and haven't watched it sense, it gave me fricking nightmares!

But yes, it is most likely a coincidence. I bet I could get a Queen cd to match up with Dahmer. Killer Queen as he rapes and kills his 3rd victim....... quiet unsettling.

The problem with attempting to find out which albums were actually used to make a movie boils down to zeroing in on which ones are serious candidates, and then confirming the choices. The reason this is a problem is because studio-recorded popular music is often used to make movies (and novels I bet), so the action in the film ends up timed with a recording studio's favored metronome beat, a beat which it seems very many rock albums time up with. Just about every album in a given collection will synch with just about any movie made to music, and sometimes there will be interesting coincidences even when an album has clearly not been used.

Another problem: In order to use music to make a movie or a story, you have to mix an adequate number of albums into one tape, or else take volumes of notes listening to the albums seperately. These albums might be chosen for any number of reasons, even if only for their album cover theme. Albums like Rubber Soul or Sixteen Stone would be good initial candidates for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. The music of the Cure might be chosen because of a primary theme running throughout the film. Another reason for choosing an album might be because the album is being used for very many movies being produced during a given time frame, which was why I decided to try The Smashing Pumpkins for the first Harry Potter movie. Other indicators might consist of hints built into the imagery of the film, which is what got me started playing Rush's Moving Pictures and Candy-O by the Cars to Videodrome.

As an example of a really good match between movie and album, get a copy of the album entitled Pornography by The Cure, and play that to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. This synchronization definitiely takes priority over Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (primary Fight Club album).

In order to zero in on a definite match one should also watch the "actor ballet. It will synch with just about any beat, but the key is to look for albums who's melody the actors are very clearly playing with, taking into account that one album might be used primarily to pace the movie, while another will be popular for use by the actors to "dance to."

And then there is their use of alchemical language, which is not understood at all outside exclusive circles (except by me). It can be learned just by studying movie symbolism, but it is much better to study nature (orgone biophysics), movies, occult disinformation, and your own journals to get at this coded language over the course of a decade or more. Hint: analogy is a primary feature, but the analogy system used ties all true ideas into one system of highly effective thought. For example, astrology is disinformation as published, but becomes supremely alchemical and mathematical under their system of thirteen primordial ideas.

Ideas were drawn from Susperia to make this first Harry Potter film, ideas relating to the "deadly" difficulties encountered while attempting astral projection (jumping through a trap door, which is an Earth elemental Prince analogy or Pisces/Cancer/Aquarius . . . confusing only until understood).

The Cure's Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me is a definite synchronization for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Lots of actor ballet factor.

gazrok, if you search for The Dark Side of the Rainbow on download sites you might find it all set up for you.

Synchronicity in albums and movies is everywhere but Dark Side of the Rainbow is frightening in it complexity. As I said, most likely a coincidence but there are so many of them that it makes you wonder.

If you read about some of the other synchronicities, you will see that Dark Side has many more incidents than the others and the complexities are are far more obvious.

For example, some guy decided to run wish you were here with IT's a wonderful life. The dissertation I found on the web delves into the lyrics and the meaning and there are a few scenes that seem to tie together but nothing like that found in Dark Side of the Rainbow.

and for those of you that do plan on watching Dark Side of the Rainbow, try it without dope first so that your mind is clearer.

The Dark Side of the Moon Synchronization with The Wizard of Oz was very purposeful and also alchemical. Many of the scene-lyrics matches in that synch are meant to be interpreted alchemically by people who know the true alchemical language. For example, the ringing of all of the clock alarms, just as the "wicked witch" first appears, is alchemical and relates to Gemini matrix analogy in General, identifying the alchemical nature of the wicked witch as network-based and also as a human presence in Dorothy's "ultra-mind-controlled" life (Dorothy is a human battery used to keep "network chicks" illuminated, so "the incubator" goes down as Dorothy has her encounter with the wicked old lady).

Try the synch starting the music just as Dorothy makes her third knock on the Tin Man's chest and other interesting things happen.

Watching it to dope is a waste. One should process that information with an intelligent mind. Many of the synchs involve information relating to the influence of astral-projection-based mind-control, involving astral-etheric vampirism. This is a theme communicated quite often via movie alchemy. Can't touch the information though, unless you got the guts to go after the real "MK Ultra" stuff.

No one seems to have brought up the fact that there were no cd's when Dark Side of the Moon came out. How did they put it on repeat? Just change it over really fast?
