Ken Brown's psychedelic Light Show Films (1967-69) at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

"Breathing new life into the films the soundtrack was an unrestrained jam thrown together with psychedelic undertones to suit Brown’s vision. True to their time, the films possess an unruly energy with hallucinatory superimpositions, pulsing lights, animations, and comic vignettes. With its abundance of graphic referencing, Ken Brown's films are true pop culture artifacts and a testament to a time of cultural, political and artistic revolutions."
