The Residents
The Residents
THE RESIDENTS have been regarded as icons in the world of experimental music for over forty years. In addition to their groundbreaking work in the areas of trance, world fusion, electronica, punk, industrial and lounge music, the group has also been credited with being among the originators of performance art and music video. Their early videos are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art and their Freak Show CD-Rom was featured in MOMA’s “Looking at Music 3.0” exhibition. Their four decade long career has also taken them into the world of film and television music, having scored several episodes of the PEE WEE HERMAN SHOW, HUNTERS (for the Discovery Channel), THE CENSUS TAKER (1985), HEAVEN (1987), CONCEIVING ADA (1997), CONDO PAINTING (1997), THOMAS PYNCHON - A JOURNEY INTO THE MIND (2001), INVESTIGATION INTO THE INVISIBLE WORLD (2002) and STRANGE CULTURE (2007) as well as several projects for MTV. In addition, the group is also thriving in the world of digital media having released ten DVDs, and two internet series.

The Residents' In Between Dreams touring show focuses on dreamlike material from the group's vast catalog - "In my dreams at night, I hear a white hot light" from Jelly Jack, the Boneless Boy; "Afterwards it's like a dream you don't remember" from Picnic on the Jungle; and "I see him when I'm dreaming, his teeth are white and bare" from The Monkey Man, among others - the set also includes songs from The Ghost of Hope, their recent album, and newly written material drawn from a future project.

Dreams are nothing new for The Residents. In the Mole Show, their first tour, they dreamed of being Moles, crawling out from the safety of the underground; while in Shadowland, their most recent tour, they fantasized about being a rock band. Not unlike a guinea pig ingesting its own tail, In Between Dreams finds the group dreaming about dreams. Similar to the Shadowland show, the performance also includes several short video monologues featuring John Wayne reflecting on his dream about a ballerina, Mother Teresa having a nightmare about a train wreck and a clown who dreams he's a cowboy.
