Electrical Dreams


Electrical Dreams
  • RAW Art Space is hosting an electronica concert titled 'Electric Dreams Vol 8' this Friday @ KL [ poster | tix ] featuring AfterArt. Tsa Meera, Rastko Lazić and Notorische Ruhestörung.
  • Looks like an opportunity to showcase the retro hit 'Together in Electric Dreams' (1985), updated and covered by rock band Mechanical Black (2011).
  • Although the video has some alt elements (eg. cross dressing), it is mostly a wholesome, tongue-in-cheek tale of nerdy assistants in a quantum computing lab who turn into metal rockers after being struck by lightning.
  • Amazingly, the video producers managed to secure a stellar cast of computer luminaries to appear in pop-up cameos, including Guido Van Rossum (Python), James Gosling (Java), John Resig (jQuery) and Elonka Dunin (IDGA).
