About the Event
VALIS is based on the semi-autobiographical novel by science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. In his review of the recording on Bridge (which continues to be a best-seller for the label), Thomas May wrote that Machover “fashioned a score of labyrinthine complexity to evoke the story's many-layered strands of meaning and imagery.” In a program note to the original production, Machover wrote that Dick’s novel “seemed to uncannily address so many of my own concerns, from the obsessive search for unifying principles of human experience, to the complex interrelationship between individual mental imagination and external objective truth, to the potential – and the limits – of advanced technology."
