Wall of Sound

Space Is the Place

Wall of Sound: A monthly installment of silver screen sonic treasures. From celebrated concert films and music docs, to classic movies with euphonious soundtracks, and rarely seen flicks with performances from music legends, give yourself to the cacophonous joy of the Wall Of Sound. Presented by Slant Street Records.

Science fiction, blaxploitation, cosmic free-jazz and radical race politics combine when Sun Ra returns to earth in his music-powered space ship to battle for the future of the black race and offer an 'alter-destiny' to those who would join him. Intentionally created as an homage to the low-budget science fiction films of the 50's and 60's, Space Is The Place became a visual embodiment of Sun Ra's Afro-Egyptian myth of salvation in outer space. The special effects, outrageous plot line and apocalyptic message harmonize with the otherworldly score and a climactic live performance by one of the most innovative and profound groups in jazz history. This is the director's cut of the 1974 film production restored to its original 82 minute length.
