In the tradition of Sidney Lumet’s seminal black comedy Network and Orson Welles legendary radio broadcast of HG Wells’ War of the Worlds, Moon Medicin presents Un-Televised Revolutions, a music driven multimedia state of the union address over breakbeats. Moon Medicin combines original compositions and reinterpretations of contemporary standards that range from Prince’s “Controversy ” to experimental rock with Radiohead’s “Weird Fishes” with charged visual imagery, offering an elixir for societal malaise.

Moon Medicin is a multimedia concept band performing original compositions interspersed with re-imagined covers. The collective performs against a backdrop of curated sound effects and images of sci-fi, punk, sacred geometry, coded symbology, film noir, minstrels, world politics, and ceremonial dance. Renowned visual artist Sanford Biggers is the creative director joined by a rotating cast of musicians, designers, and performance artists.
