HOUSE OF BLUES FILMS INANNA AND ARTIST
Sun., Nov. 7, 1997
House of Blues executives from the east and west coast were in attendance for a special presentation by local Alabama artist Calvin Livingston, a painter who portrays the characters of INANNA - THE OPERA. A morning mist had just risen on a cool November day. A courtyard of four story brick walls echoed the songs of INANNA'S Insatiable and Rebirth. On a stage smaller than most hotel bathrooms, Inanna and her three piece orchestra wove the opening theme from morning mists' silence to the Ascension of the Queen of Heaven's wails of glory.
Artist Calvin Livingston has worked to the strains of Inanna - The Opera for over nine months, using vivid imagery and mixing methods into visual explosions of ethereal/archetypal forms. His work may be seen at the House of Blues in New Orleans, Atlanta and the House of Blues online. He is hoping to appear at selected dates during the INANNA - THE OPERA TOUR ‘98. During the filming, Calvin also played percussion, and afterward hit an impromptu blues jam with Inanna and the orchestra, also captured by the House of Blues camera's eye.
We are hoping to have a video from the House of Blues people soon, to be made available to you through AKASHIC RECORDS & PUBLISHING.
