Jornada del Muerto

2009
Live video performance, Claudia X. Valdes
Live experimental guitarist, William Fowler Collins
40 minute performance, in 4 parts.

The music of experimental guitarist William Fowler Collins, as reviewed by Aquarius Records, is described as “the closest comparison to an imagined soundtrack for ‘The Road’ that we have ever heard”.  In this live audio visual performance Collins contributes a chilling cinematic post-apocalyptic soundscape. Alongside, I perform live visuals interpreting the music as an epic journey through New Mexico’s Jornada del Muerto. Collectively, we take the viewer on a meditative dream through a devastating atomic landscape.
