      Video Musics III: Floating Oceans is a 38-minute 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. The piece is dedicated to Flann O’Brien. Video Musics III: Floating Oceans contrasts the vivid dreams of its poet-protagonist with the foreboding routine of pedestrian life. Parts operate under the tow of dream logic. All dialogue and narration are expressed through lyrics and music performed live in front of the projected video. The piece explores non-linear and traditional linear narrative, and uses the musical meters of modern classical, hip-hop, ambient, and psychedelia. This work is the third in a series of animated video operas by Alexis Gideon (www.alexisgideon.com). During screenings, the film is accompanied by live musical performance. The live music mirrors the action exactly, and the animated characters' mouths are perfectly in sync with the sung lyrics. World premiere 10/11/2012 at the Hollywood Theater (www.hollywoodtheater.org) in Portland Oregon. Extensive US and Europe tours start October 2012. The vinyl+video download release is slated for November 5th, 2012 on Africantape (www.africantape.com).

        Video Musics III: Floating Oceans is a 38-minute stop-motion animated 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. The piece explores and celebrates Irish mythology and culture, and the balance between non-linear and traditional linear narrative. Irish literature is reexamined through the meters of modern classical, hip-hop, ambient, and psychedelia, deconstructing and reconstituting various cultural postures. Video Musics III: Floating Oceans contrasts the vivid dreams of a nameless poet-protagonist with the foreboding routine of pedestrian life. When the protagonist attends a bourgeois dinner party, he hears different guests´ tales, each in its own melodic and visual style, affording glimpses of inchoate longing through the tattered veil of dinner-party patter. Parts operate under the tow of dream logic. All dialogue and narration are expressed through the lyrics and music. This work is the third in a series of animated video operas by Alexis Gideon. During screenings, the film is accompanied by live musical performance. The live music mirrors the action exactly, and the animated characters´ mouths are perfectly in sync with the sung lyrics.
