In Central Park, 1968, a director shot scenes of a young couple whose marriage was falling apart - 35 years later they are back in Central Park as the director relentlessly pursues the ever-elusive symbiopsychotaxiplasmic moment.
Filmmaker William Greaves is shooting a series of screen tests in New York City's Central Park for the two leads of a feature length movie, with the working title of "Over the Cliff". Simultaneously, he has a documentary filmmaking crew filming the behind the scenes making of the movie.
Soft Heap indeed. This is none other than Soft Machine saxophonist Elton Dean with fellow proggers Pip Pyle and Mark Hewins with avant-rocker John Greaves. So what do you think this live recording from a French date in 1982 (with one track from BBC Radio in 1983) sounds like?

U.K. supergroup Crippled Black Phoenix is a progressive post-rock musical collective that has featured nearly 30 members in its rotating roster. A constant driving force is Justin Greaves of Electric Wizard and Iron Monkey, who started the band in 2004 with the help of Mogwai bassist Dominic Aitchison. In 2006, Crippled Black Phoenix released their first album, A Love of Shared Disasters, and started concentrating on live shows, which often involved more than a dozen members on-stage. Resurrectionists and Night Raider were recorded from March of 2007 to August of 2008 at S.O.A. Studio in Bristol, and released in 2009, along with a compilation of songs from those two albums titled 200 Tons of Bad Luck. 2010's I, Vigilante followed on Geoff Barrow's Invada Records, and sparked some attention with a stoner rock version of Journey’s "Of a Lifetime." 2012 saw the more conceptual, (Mankind) The Crafty Ape. Greaves and Co. followed that up the 2013 live album, Live Poznań, and 2014's White Light Generator.
