CHANGING LANDSCAPES (WAUTERS FARM)
In the Wauters Farm installment of their Changing Landscapes series, art collective Arthur King travels to a small family farm in rural Iowa in order to gather audio and video field recordings and reuse them creatively in a large-scale, improvisational visual art and music performance within the same setting. These musical and visual experiments incorporate an artistic methodology that aims to create a deeper connection to our surroundings and ourselves.
RANDY RANDALL - SOUND FIELD VOL 1
Sound Field Volume One is an album and visual art piece containing a series of ambient musical compositions created by Grammy nominated composer, songwriter, and No Age guitarist Randy Randall and visual artist Aaron Farley. Inspired by California’s I-10 highway; from the desert sunrise in Palm Springs to the dense traffic of Downtown LA and the sunset at the Santa Monica Pier, the album and visual artworks takes listeners on a journey through the various landscapes along the route.
JASON LYTLE - NYLONANDJUNO
NYLONANDJUNO is an experimental album and visual art piece by Grandaddy founder/songwriter/producer Jason Lytle and creative collective Mind Palace. Unlike Grandaddy or solo works, this album was created exclusively from one analog synthesizer and one nylon-string acoustic guitar. These restrictions provided Lytle with a minimalist compositional process he describes as “oddly refreshing", allowing him concentrate on going deep to achieve certain feelings based on song titles and subject matter. The results evoke both futurism and intimacy. Inspired by the nature element of Nylon and the synthetic aspects of Juno, Mind Palace created an accompanying short film featuring a series of real life scenarios based on the themes of the compositions, made of hand made miniatures.
