Cinema Soloriens and the Cosmo-Drama

A multimedia collaboration between filmmaker James Harrar and legendary 
musician Marshall Allen (longtime associate of Sun Ra). The performance 
consists of James and Marshall, as well as various guest musicians, 
providing a musical accompaniment to James' short films, which are 
"often meditations on beauty, perception, allegory, sensuality, and 
visual phenomena." This time, James and Marshall will be joined by 
drummer Matt Hannafin and electric bassist Adam Reese. The performance 
will also include rare Sun Ra footage from the 60's and 70's. All of the 
films will be making their West Coast premiere. A brief Q & A will follow.
