The SoCal Rebels
10 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

Of the experimental animation done by the California Rebels, I was the most impressed by Allures. A precursor to Lazer Shows (though mind-bogglingly better than any lazer show) and an homage to Oskar Fishingker. Spiritualist Belson wrote the score for this visual tone pone, and it remains one of the top five of my favorite viewing experiences. Its like seeing visual sound (like Mary Ellen Bute) that transcends into the spiritual domain. The IOTA Center in SoCal is working on a restoration. When they are finished, I advise finding a compilation of all of Belson's wonderful, overlooked, experiments!
