360

1981, 46:02 min, color, sound

As an early pioneer of the music video, Julia Heyward presents a long-form "video album" with 360 that was released just a year prior to the birth of MTV. Heyward's ten songs (recorded with Jody Harris of The Raybeats and The Contortions and Don Christensen of The Raybeats and Bush Tetras) are interspersed with her familiar a cappella-like monologues, for which she appears as a child, clown, or in a pig's mask. The "album" was to be distributed on the then-emergent format of videodisc, but was never released as such, which speaks to the shifting fields of obsolescence and new technology.

Written and made by Julia Heyward with the assistance of Peter Fletcher, Lieann Halfon, Trace Rosel. Music by Don Christensen and Jody Harris. Lyrics by J. Heyward. Music produced by Don Christensen at Sorcerer Sound.
