Alexis Gideon Releases Trailer for New Audio/Visual Album

Alexis Gideon Releases Trailer for New Audio/Visual Album

Alexis Gideon - the wizard of hip-hop, animation, guitar strumming and storytelling - has just posted a trailer to his next (very ambitious looking) video album titled Video Musics II: Sun Wu-Kong. The project is being described as a “one hour multimedia video opera based on the 16th century Chinese novel ‘The Journey to the West’."

A wide variety of musical and animation contributors are credited, including Rachel Blumberg (M. Ward) and Cynthia Star (Coraline, Moral Orel, Robot Chicken). Video Musics, his previous audio/visual endeavor, had a run length of around 25 minutes while it followed ancient Hungarian Folk tales.

You can check out multiple clips from Video Musics here. The release date is slated for Fall of 2010.

Check out the preview clip below; looks weird (and cool):

Gideon has also released a cool mixtape titled Move Your Shit, Man via the folks over at African Tape Group that features an interesting remix of White Hinterland's "Begin Again". You can stream or download the mixtape here.
