NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE

Psychedelic Cinema


Transport yourself to the psychedelic 60s. Massachusetts native Ken Brown’s astonishing Super 8 films were shot as part of the light shows that accompanied the great bands of the era. Featuring elaborate montages, quirky animations, and lots of swirling lights, they were projected during historic performances by Jimi Hendrix, Santana, The Who, Boston’s own The Hallucinations (Peter Wolf) and practically every other great band to come through town between 1967 and 1969.

This special presentation will include live music by a supergroup of silent film accompanists: Ken Winokur of Alloy Orchestra, Beth Custer of Clubfoot Orchestra, and Jonathan LaMaster of Cul de Sac.

A Q+A with film director Ken Brown will immediately follow the screening.

ABOUT KEN BROWN
Ken Brown is a filmmaker, photographer, cartoonist, and designer. His first love and most abiding passion, however, is film. After the late 1960s, when he created the ultra-psychedelic Boston Tea Party light show, his subsequent short films have continued to mine his deep fascination with American pop culture, the quotidian world of home movies, and the idiosyncratic world of outsiders and visionary artists.

MUSIC
The new incarnation of Psychedelic Cinema will be accompanied by a new band, made up of "survivors of the silent film wars."  Ken Winokur (Alloy Orchestra) and Beth Custer (Clubfoot Orchestra), meld their signature junk percussion, melodic clarinets and keyboards, and recorded samples of music, speeches and audio artifacts from the 60s, are joined by silent film veteran Jonathan LaMaster (Cul de Sac).
