Landscape Circles is a performance piece/art installation created by Matt Sargent (composer) and Adrian Parsons (artist). I had the great pleasure of videotaping a one-night-only performance of Landscape Circles at the Strand on Volta Gallery in Washington, D.C. on July 15th 2006.
Matt describes the piece as follows: “The inspiration for Landscape Circles came from observing the phasing of runway lights during a three-hour layover at Bradley International Airport in Hartford, CT. Adrian’s video projections are comprised of tens of thousands of still images collected by a flatbed scanner duct-taped to Adrian’s 14th Street window in Washington D.C.”
Matt has agreed to write music for several episodes of Hopper Video’s upcoming web series “Next To Heaven.” I am delighted to be collaborating with Matt and can’t wait to hear what he comes up with!
