Vulfpeck Adapts Homer’s ‘The Odyssey’ As A Musical In New “Disco Ulysses” Video [Watch]

first_imgVulfpeck has shared a new live video for their Hill Climber instrumental, “Disco Ulysses”.While the song itself has no lyrics, the always-eccentric outfit added some thematic context to the video by way of scrolling stage directions that frame the song as a scene-by-scene outline of a musical—with a book by Homer (sweet literary reference) and music by Vulfpeck. The titles move through dry, comical adaptations of various scenes in Homer’s The Odyssey (like Ulysses blinding the Cyclops) paired with fictional songs like “I Can’t See Good”. While the “scenes” are surely good for some amused chuckles, they also add some creative context for the song’s various distinct musical sections.Check out the new video for Vulfpeck’s “Disco Ulysses” below:Vulfpeck – “Disco Ulysses” [Official Video][Video: Vulf]Related: Vulfpeck Welcomes Cory Henry, The Fearless Flyers At Chilly Red Rocks Blowout [Photos/Video]Vulfpeck has only a handful of performances on the books for the remainder of this year, including a pair of performances at the Greek Theatres in Los Angeles and Berkeley, CA (fittingly dubbed “Greek Week“) in July, a slot at this year’s LOCKN’ festival in August, and their debut performance at New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden in September.
