632 après Ford : désormais on compte les années à partir de l'invention de la voiture à moteur.
La technologie et la science ont remplacé la liberté et Dieu. …
Aldous Huxley: The Gravity Of Light incorporates rare archival footage, computer rendered 3D animation, speculative fictions, and selections from his essays. The film begins by reflecting upon that crucial, prophetic work "Brave New World" (1932, Aldous Huxley) and then moves to a further inquiry into the human ramifications of current technological change. The film also recalls the impact of Huxley's LSD-25 and mescaline experimentations and writings for a generation of youth and examines the utopianistic impulses associated with the Rave scene.
Brave New World's whole oeuvre was the concept of the Aldous Huxley science fiction novel. An unlikely "supergroup" - and remarkably - the music they created was unprecedented and original. Brave New World blended styles, in such an unlikely manner, and notably during the opening of side two's big opus, hinting at the music later created by the likes of Art Zoyd or Univers Zero. Virtually instrumental, blending medieval musics, electronics, jazz and rock in a dazzlingly complex fusion, a big step beyond early Between, with the Krautrock feel of Annexus Quam, Achim Reichel, Tomorrow's Gift, et al. An all-time Krautrock classic.
Cloning, feel-good drugs, anti-aging programs, and total social control through politics, programming, and media - has Aldous Huxley accurately predicted our twenty-first century existence? With a Storyteller's genius he weaves these ethical controversies in a compelling narrative that draws in the 632 A.F. (After Ford, the deity). This title is read by Michael York.
