          Filmmaker Peter Glantz explores musical, spiritual, and cosmic connections between these two seemingly disparate groups. We turned this episode of XLR8R TV over to filmmaker Peter Glantz, who went to Providence, Rhode Island's Foo Fest to take a closer look at the festival's two main attractions—Lightning Bolt and Sun Ra Arkestra. Lightning Bolt, Providence's epic noise duo headed up by Brian Chippendale and Brian Gibson, is known for surprising, chaotic, often transcendent performances. Sun Ra Arkestra became legendary in the jazz world under the leadership of cosmic philosopher and organist Sun Ra from the mid-1950s until his death in 1993. Today, the Arkestra continues to flourish and promote the cosmic philosophy of Sun Ra under the direction of alto saxophonist Marshall Allen. Here, Glantz captures both their live performances and meditates on the spiritual alliance between these two far-flung musical compatriots

                      This is short silent video that I made to be included in the Being Impossible multi-media performance directed by Peter Glantz. The content of the video clip was more or less dictated by Peter to fit in with the performance. In Peter's own words: BEING IMPOSSIBLE by Peter Glantz and The Imaginary Company Being Impossible is a story about the discovery of love. It tells of the 1000 year journey of Osmo the wizard who discovers a greater power than magic or control. When he is first developing his powers, his teacher gives him an impossible task: go to the sun and return with proof you've been there. Osmo responds fearfully, "But the sun is hot." The teacher laughs, "What would someone say if I touched fire to their arm?" Osmo responds, "Um. Ouch." The teacher says, "What we need is to learn a different reaction than 'Ouch!'" And from there Osmo's epic journey - riddled with obstacles, breakdowns, false starts and even his own death and rebirth - begins. Peter Glantz performs and creates this 45 minute multi-media show with video, live and pre-recorded music, physical comedy, and smiles to tell a tale of mind expansion that only begins when our hero cracks open his heart and discovers love is the story that never ends. The movies and music included in the performance are created in collaboration with the Imaginary Company - a loose network of artists and musicians that include Becky Stark (Lavender Diamond), Jacob Ciocci (Paper Rad), Art Jenkins (Sun Ra Arkestra), Thom Klepach (Black Elf Speaks) and more TBD.
