During the summer of 2017, Arthur King took a trip to the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in the rural Utah desert. The group set out to collect an array of audio field recordings and video footage from this remote setting. The musicians combined their recordings with their more traditional instruments such as guitar, synthesizer, and drum machine in a live musical performance on the final night of their trip. They also projected live visuals constructed from layers upon layers of processed footage captured from the same desert landscape. This trip was documented in a short video piece entitled Changing Landscapes (Grand Escalante).
CHANGING LANDSCAPES RECORDING
An album of music was created from the recordings of the live performance by Walker and Espinoza. The album, also entitled Changing Landscapes (Grand Escalante), was released on Dangerbird Records in April of 2018. It is available here.
