Syrian Rue - films by Eoin Shea with music by Michael Flower DVD

Brand new self released DVD-R project with Michael Flower (of Vibracathedral Orchestra, Flower/Corsana Duo, United Light, occasional Sunburned Hand of the Man etc):
Limited self-released DVD that bundles the hallucinatory full-colour experimental short films of UK avantist Eoin Shea (in a style that combines psychedelically altered 'found' footage and 1970s/80s home movies with over the top technicolour visual fluctuations ala Kenneth Anger’s Magik Lantern Cycle) with unreleased music by Michael Flower of Vibracathedral Orchestra. The sonics here are drawn from what would have been Flower’s first solo album, with long tracks of warped electric strings extended into aggressively amplified ragas. An inspired collaboration.
Volcanic Tongue
Available online now at Volcanic Tongue and various US distributors soon enough.
