John Malkovich’s Creepy Narration of Plato’s Cave Allegory Set to Experimental Music

John Malkovich’s Creepy Narration of Plato’s Cave Allegory Set to Experimental Music January 2, 2016

In the audio below, John Malkovich narrates Plato’s Allegory of the Cave to music by Eric Alexandrakis, as remixed by Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon for the project Like a Puppet Show. Much more about the project can be learned from Pitchfork and especially at Rolling Stone. Many thanks to @durancurefan for the heads up. While my first listen I found it arty, jarring, and merely intriguingly bizarre, on the second listen through I got the musicality of it more and it started to really click for me towards the end.

As a bonus, here’s a great claymation treatment of the Allegory of the Cave:
