Urban Space Epics is a project started by
author/programmer/performance-poet Darrell Jónsson in the 1980s as a
framework to combine 20th century experimental film techniques,
innovative music, and epic narrative chants with live expanded cinema.
These sung stories along with expanded film techniques improvise within
a Homeric structure to illustrate colorful trans-cultural adventures.
Jónsson is an honorary member of the Northern California Light Artist
Guild, a member of the Center for Visual Music and has published 4
chapbooks of poetry and short stories.A Kindle-eBook version of
Jonsson's stories entitled XYL: The Spectacular Suicides of the Acrobats
of Logic and Reason is available on Amazon. His musical collaboration
with folklorist/musician Matej Kratochvil entitled Studio 17 Duets was
recently released on the Czech-Finnish label Meteroismo.
