War on Our Dreams

An electro-poetic parable of a post-armageddon civilization. A travelogue of the human heart.

War on Our Dreams is an electro-poetic audio-visual excursion through the post-apocalyptic City and the landscapes of the human psyche, a parable of a future driven to destruction by greed and hubris, and the possibility of redemption through the human heart.

Driven by original musical compositions by Brian E. Langston, featuring live poetry performances by the composer and the poets Susurrus Din and Karla Mancero, and unique videography from artist/filmmaker Matt Muirhead, this collaborative experience crosses the vast terrain of the outer and inner worlds.
