Los Angeles-based experimental music and art collective Arthur King debut new video “Lightning Bugs;” watch/share HERE.

The track is taken from the next installment in their ongoing Changing Landscapes series, Wauters Farm, out May 31 via Dangerbird Records.

Changing Landscapes (Wauters Farm) includes an album as well as short film (to be released Summer 2019) documenting its creation at a farm in Iowa. The project was created by Arthur King members Aaron Espinoza, Peter Walker and David Ralicke, and was performed and recorded live outdoors in rural Iowa at night.

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. They aim to encourage a deeper consciousness of the environment and our place within it through music and film. This 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.

Who is Arthur King? The LA-based collective allows musicians to come together to improvise experimental music and visual art performances in unique spaces. Performers include musicians who have played with Beck, Lou Reed, John Cale, Elliott Smith, Earlimart and EELS, among others. Learn more here:

Previous films have included Darren Aronofsky’s Pi, Pixar’s Wall-E, Planet of the Apes, Edward Scissorhands, Delicatessen and Jurassic Park.
