Maple Mountain Sunburst: Isabella Rossellini reads prose by Aldous Huxley's wife (music video)

Andy McNeill of The Maple Mountain Sunburst Triolian Orchestra shares the fantastic video above with Boing Boing, for the band's song "LookListenFeel." You can also watch it at 30,000 feet: on-board Virgin America planes on our in-flight Boing Boing Video entertainment channel. Andy explains.

Last August I drove to Isabella Rossellini's apartment in Manhattan from the little town of Elora Ontario where I live, armed with a laptop and a mic. There we recorded her narration for two tracks for my album The Maple Mountain Sunburst Triolian Orchestra. She was as gracious and wonderful as one would imagine.

The words are from Laura Archera Huxley, widow of Aldous Huxley. She died in 2007 at the age of 96 at her Hollywood Hills home.

Godspeed, unicorns.

The video was created entirely in illustrator and After Effects CS4. YouTube link, or Vimeo link.
