"Alice in Broadcastland"

Alice in Broadcastland from Markey Funk on Vimeo.



"In 1862 a boat trip up the Isis gave birth to a story about Alice's adventures in Wonderland. Three years later it was published as a book by Lewis Carroll.

In 1966 British director Jonathan Miller turned Lewis Carroll's book into a trippy theatrical black&white movie. 40 years later it was often mentioned as one of the top favorites by the band Broadcast.

On January 14th, 2011 Trish Keenan, the lead singer of Broadcast, died of pneumonia at the age of 42. She has left behind a handful of albums of unique music, unforgettable voice and expanding influence in modern music and culture.

On January 25th, 2012 Markey Funk recreated live the soundtrack of Jonathan Miller's movie, based entirely on music by Broadcast.

The most significant dream story has finally met the most significant dream music. This is the result."


Haven't watched this yet so couldn't comment on how well it works, but thought some may be interested to check it out.

Re:

Cool. The original film (made for TV in the 60s) is truly wonderful and has been available (hopefully to everyone) on YouTube for quite some time. The film features cameos from all sorts of British greats with a soundtrack by Ravi Shankar. It really captures the laudanum-influenced psychedelic Victorian insanity of the original book.

Re:

Pretty fun juxtaposition of sight and sound, and well executed. Would like to hear more Trish though. It's kind of instrumental, largely.

Re:

Yes. Bits work and bits don't. I really really like the marching band bit that starts from abot 37:30. I think a mash-up between the Broadcast soundtrack and the original might work a treat.
