The Magic Sun DVD (1966)

Sun Ra & His Outer Space Arkestra

The classic 1966 film by PHILL NIBLOCK featuring SUN RA & HIS SOLAR ARKESTRA, PLUS rare & exclusive SUN RA footage, photos & audio "proclaimations"!

Composer, photographer and filmmaker
Phill Niblock's classic of experimental underground filmmaking with a sensational soundtrack by pianist Sun Ra and the members of his Solar Arkestra.

Shot in the mid '60s, when the Arkestra was based in New York, this film was produced using a unique negative process
and ultra-tight close-ups on the moving hands and mouths of the musicians. The result is a virtually abstract music film, mastered from a new print in all its incredibly sharp black & white glory. The Magic Sun DVD also includes a photo gallery with 14:00 of self-recorded Ra
audio- a truly "inside" interview.
