Beautiful Soundtrack: Kilian Martin's "Altered Route"

I'm by no (absolutely no) means a skateboarding enthusiast, or even an avid watcher of short films, but last night, my friend showed me skateboarder Kilian Martin's beautifully shot skating videos and I was kind of blown away. So much so that I drank my tea with a side of several more of his videos this morning. Aside from the obviously exceptional skateboarding tricks, the shorts are cinematically gorgeous and put to some pretty breathtaking music.

Just another example of how music enhances everything we see and do.

Take a look at one of the videos below, and listen for how Patrick Watson's "Adventures in your Own Backyard" sets the whimsical tone perfectly.
