About the Event

Nothing else has ever looked or felt like director René Laloux’s animated marvel La planète sauvage, a politically minded and visually inventive work of science fiction. The film is set on a distant planet called Ygam, where enslaved humans (Oms) are the playthings of giant blue native inhabitants (Draags). After Terr, kept as a pet since infancy, escapes from his gigantic child captor, he is swept up by a band of radical fellow Oms who are resisting the Draags’ oppression and violence. With its eerie, coolly surreal cutout animation by Roland Topor and wondrous creatures and landscapes, this Cannes-awarded 1973 counterculture classic is a perennially compelling statement against conformity and violence.

The Empyreans are an improvisational ambient collective featuring rotating musicians from various locations. The concept was created by multi instrumentalist/composer Craig Douglas (Neonach, Circus Of Dead Squirrels, Obliquity). The intention was to gather like minded enthusiasts of spacious and minimal ambient music for a one time collective performance in sound and time. All performances are entirely spontaneous, meditative and in the moment. They are meant to be a gift, tossed into the universe for one time only experience.       Current Lineup:     Craig Douglas-(Neonach) - synth/vocals, Adam Michael Kozac (Burial Grid) - synths, Guy Douglas (Sound Healing Symphony)- gongs, bowls, Anthony Bearse (Obliquity)- synths, Shoebei-dahl- bowed chimes.
