SLIFF - Floating Oceans
Floating Oceans

Alexis Gideon, U.S., 2012, 38 min. (film)/70 min. (performance)

Wednesday, Nov. 14, 7 p.m., Webster U./Moore

"Floating Oceans" is the surrealistic third installment in musician/composer/animator Alexis Gideon's critically acclaimed multimedia opera series, "Video Musics III: Floating." A stop-motion-animation video opera 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  "Floating Oceans" contrasts the vivid dreams of its poet-protagonist with the foreboding routine of pedestrian life. The video's dialogue and narration are delivered entirely through lyrics and music that Gideon performs live in front of the projected image, with the score combining elements of modern classical, hip-hop, ambient, and psychedelia. The Portland Mercury calls Gideon "a singular visionary, creating multimedia opuses that have no peer." St. Louis' one-man-band Googolplexia opens the show, performing to a projection of Brian Vittenson's film "Itchy Pony." With performer/animator/composer Gideon.
