From a Southwind press release: Join Southwind on a journey where the vision of Tim Burton meets the imagination of Cirque Du Soleil, where the soul of Saint Saens joins the whimsy of Willy Wonka, where conscious and subconscious merge in a compositional, visual whirlwind entitled "A Distorted Imagination."

The savagery of the gladiatorial epics "Ben Hur," "Spartacus" and "Gladiator"; the driving excitement of "Van Helsing" and "The Wind and the Lion;" the classical brilliance of Holst's "Mars" and Saint Saens' "Bacchanale;" and the skewed fantasies of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" and Cirque Du Soleil combine to create a frenetic maelstrom of sound and color. The kaleidoscopic melodies constantly shift and bubble to the surface, demanding the attention of all who listen and rewarding them with a twisted view of drum corps never before seen.

If Joseph Joubert was right and imagination IS the eye of the soul, Southwind's 2005 program dares you to see yourself in new ways. They invite you to take a trip inside their distorted imagination and look at the world as few can.
