This weekend, the Brooklyn Academy of Music presented a new work of originality, power, and beauty that left an audience slack-jawed. Brooklyn Babylon is a collaboration between the graphic novelist Danijel Zezelj and composer Darcy James Argue, and it is destined to be considered a classic of the evolving genre of multimedia performance.
David Krasnow, Studio 360: A New Multimedia Masterpiece: Brooklyn Babylon
A groundbreaking multimedia work. Because there is no libretto, the entire narrative is told through the music and Mr. Zezelj's powerful and chilling illustrations. The shifting images act as a sort of time machine, forward-moving and seemingly implacable.
Tad Hendrickson, The Wall Street Journal: Razing a New Tower of Babel
Visual splendor and musical majesty of the type not often experienced, a tour de force.
