Shirley Recital Hall, FAC
A one-hour multimedia video opera based on the 16th-century Chinese novel The Journey to the West, Video Musics II joins the brightest lights of contemporary animation from the makers of Arthur and Coraline to Hush and Black Violet to create an aural and visual universe that gleefully transcends both media. Is it film or music, high art or pop? Alexis Gideon has toured nationally with Dan Deacon and Shelley Short as well as played with Barr, Marnie Stern, Panther, Tune Yards Parts and Labor, Zs, People, Matt and Kim and many, many others. Free. Sponsored by the Committee on Cultural Events.
