Would be excellent for background visuals during a house part-e. It's like a 90 minute screen saver for the artistic types. Plug-in! While I am sure there are varying plots throughout, or not, I found myself enjoying having it on as a late night fadeout. I found some part grabbing my attention and other parts cracking a grin. I would suggest taping it for the house part-e visuals or your own late night fadeout. It's definitely easy on the brain.
