Changing Landscapes is an ongoing series in which Arthur King captures sounds and images from a specific environment via field recordings and uses the material to create live, improvised performances in the same setting. The series aims to encourage a deeper consciousness of the environment and our place within it through music and film. The entire process is recorded live, filmed and released as a multi-media album via Dangerbird Records. The previous installment took place at Grand Escalante Staircase in Utah.
