So, you’re interested in learning to play The Black Page #1 on guitar? Check out this video from Polygon Head, angrily shake your fist at the guitar gods, and go back to your Neil Young Harvest songbook (that’s what I did):
Hat tip: Joe Williamson
The Black Page is our first true interactive short film & by far our most ambitious project to date. Combining the highest quality musical and visual design, The Black Page is a new entertainment experience in which our live onstage band will control in real-time a cast of onscreen animated musical characters.
The short film tells the tale of a lost wanderer who stumbles into a surreal desert landscape, and learns that the door home can only be opened by an unusual guardian. “Frank Zappa meets Salvador Dali in this unique interactive entertainment experience.”
World premiere: 24th September 2009, Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle UK.

A tiny snipplet from an interview, and a bit of The Black page, possibly from the Milan show (not the best audio quality, though).

Terry Bozzio is alive and well, and currently resides in Switzerland:
I’d love to see these guys performing The Black Page! Via Roger Bourland.
