Additional Information

Celebrated guitarist/composer Bill Frisell and award-winning filmmaker Bill Morrison have crafted a highly personal and illuminating musical vision, inviting us on a journey of discovery around the devastation wrought by the Mississippi River Flood of 1927. Frisell has composed an evening-length suite of original music accompanying film and staging from critically acclaimed experimental filmmaker Bill Morrison. Frisell’s evocative score harnesses a wide-ranging musical palette woven by the extraordinary composer’s vast vocabulary of American roots music and adds an emotional storytelling layer to the on-screen images that words alone can rarely attain.

Presented in association with Angel City Jazz Festival and the Jazz Bakery.

Supported in part by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Endowment Fund and the Merle & Peter Mullin Endowment for the Performing Arts.
