Download: “Parallelograms” – Linda Perhacs (mp3)

“[Parallelograms is] one of the most mystifying and beautiful moments of the psychedelic era, on par with any outré work of the time.” LA Weekly

“This evening of experimental exploration is the first-ever public performance by enigmatic folk singer Linda Perhacs, whose legendary 1970 album Parallelograms is an uncanny, ruminative masterpiece of psychedelia. She is joined by an eclectic mix of artists, who chime in with projected artwork, film, dance and musical interpretations of her work. Perhacs and her collaborators also highlight ideas from the book that inspired Parallelograms: the Theosophist manifesto Thought-Forms, written by Annie Besant in 1901…”
