about

UPGRADE SOUL is an award-winning, digital graphic novel featuring an original score by celebrated experimental musician/composer Alexis Gideon. Every bit as dense and strange as the book that inspired it, Gideon’s soundtrack mines jazz, hip hop, and giallo influences to sculpt a gloriously unpredictable soundscape punctuated alternately by passages of head-bopping bliss and skin-crawling tension.

The DELUXE VINYL version is LIMITED to 100 copies worldwide and realizes the artist’s vision with globby gooey red inside translucent orange vinyl, and includes a signed print by Ezra Claytan Daniels, exclusive to this edition. Upgrade Soul will also be available in an unlimited black vinyl edition.

ALEXIS GIDEON is an American visual artist, composer and performer, best known for his innovative animated live video operas and multidisciplinary techniques. Gideon has performed and exhibited throughout the world, including at Moderna Museet Stockholm, New Museum of Contemporary Art, Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Centro de Arte Contemporaneo Malaga, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Vdrome, Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, Wexner Center for the Arts, and Time Zones Festival Italia.

EZRA CLAYTAN DANIELS is a writer and illustrator based in Los Angeles, CA. His work has been featured at museums and festivals all over the world, including in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum.
