“”Roger Dean, the graphic designer best known for his fantastical album art for prog rock bands Yes and Asia, will stage his first immersive “high-definition 4D audio and video experience” for a limited run in San Francisco this fall.
“Dragon’s Dream: The Roger Dean Experience,” scheduled to open at Gray Area on Nov. 12, is being produced by Chambers Obscura — a collaborative group that includes the San Francisco design team Minds Over Matter, psychedelic art collector Brian Chambers and Gagan Jared Levy, founder of the local creative marketing agency Guru.
“Through Roger’s guidance and imagination, our animators brought his paintings to life,” Marc Melzer of Minds Over Matter said in a statement. “Step through the portal into his mythical landscapes. You will be surrounded by alien flora, soaring dragons, strange flying machines, grasshopper/elephant hybrids and many other extraordinary sights and sounds.” “”
