Video Musics III: Floating Oceans
7:30 p.m., Wednesday October 16
(U.S., 2012, dir. Alexis Gideons) This stop-motion animated video opera is based on the works of the early 20th century Irish writer Lord Dunsany and inspired by the time and dream experiments of the Irish physicist John William Dunne. The piece explores and celebrates Irish mythology and culture, and the balance between non-linear and traditional linear narrative. Irish literature is reexamined through the meters of modern classical, hip-hop, ambient, and psychedelia, deconstructing and reconstituting various cultural postures. All dialogue and narration are expressed through the lyrics and music performed live by Alexis Gideon.
