Our Technicolor Dream

Institute of Contemporary Art, London, April 21st 2007

'Our Technicolor Dream' on Saturday April 21st 2007 marked the 40th anniversary of the 14 Hour Technicolor Dream in true psychedelic style. The sell out event at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Central London played host to some of the original artists who participated in the 1967 event including Arthur Brown and The Pretty Things. Pink Floyd headlined the original 1960's event (but unfortunately didn't appear this time) and apparently John Lennon met Yoko Ono for the first time there.

A full psychedelic lightshow was laid on in the main theatre and the bar area by Optikinetics and others comprising numerous Solar 250, Solar 575, K series, Rank Aldis Tutor and early OHP based units and film projectors. Effects ranged from simple wheels/cassettes to Solar Systems and manually operated film strips and oil dishes etc - the effects were stunning!

The evening started with Malcolm Boyle's one-man play, 'The Madcap': a journey into the psychedelic underground as seen through the distorted mental lens of Pink Floyd's Syd Barrett. Circulus, Britain's finest neo-medieval psychedelic folk-rock band, then performed (sorry we missed them with the photos!) before The Amazing World of Arthur Brown proved he really is still the God of Hellfire! The Pretty Things ended the night with a fantastic performance.
