JONATHAN’S DIVE by EDGAR’S HAIR
The vinyl double album Jonathan's Dive is a 100-minute concept record, based on Richard Bach's novel
Jonathan Livingston Seagull, the famous fable about the seagull who is banned by his peers for wanting
to make ying an art form. A symbol of the universal desire for unlimited freedom.
Forty-three years ago the book was made into a motion picture, famously adorned with a soundtrack by
Neil Diamond, but with Jonathan’s Dive, Leiden band Edgar's Hair (among others ex-I$I$, ex-Oak) transforms
the story into a much darker and more erratic epic. An analog musical adventure full of ethnic acoustic
instruments and introduced by a multi-colored voice palette in multiple languages.
The group will be touring the theaters with this extraordinary musical document, complete with
surround sound, developed by sound designer and Golden Calf winner Wart Wamsteker, and expanded
to a feast for all senses, also incorporating dance, performance and visuals.
A unique experience.
