William Burroughs said that when two minds collaborate a third mind is created.
This is a film about the collaboration, the meeting point, the nexus of poetry and music. Michael McClure and I have been performing around the world at clubs, bars, coffee houses and universities with our mixture of Beat and Psychedelic sensibilities. Michael is a nature mystic and consciousness advocate, and the poetry mentor to my fellow Door, Jim Morrison. What we try to do is to try to create new worlds through the marriage of Michael's words and my keyboard music. We comment on the reality of the now and the eternal conundrum of man, god and existence. It is an ancient art but an always contemporary art form. The film was shot in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. - Ray Manzarek
