Artistic Innovations Project to Premiere in Austin
Montopolis premieres The Living Coast in Austin, Texas
Journey to the Texas Gulf Coast in this immersive multimedia concert brought to you by Montopolis. Surfers and sailors, shrimpers and oilmen, poets and scientists, all share their stories of the coast. Features Justin Sherburn’s original music, stunning video by Anlo Sepulveda (Yakona), and archival photography of the Great Galveston Hurricane, the deadliest storm in US history.
Fourth in the Montopolis concert series about places in Texas, The Living Coast is its most ambitious musical incarnation to date with a horn section, string section, and rock rhythm section featuring members of the Tosca String Quartet, Okkervil River, the Polyphonic Spree, and the Austin Symphony.
Montopolis is the recipient of an Artistic Innovations grant, which will allow this work to tour the M-AAA region. We can’t wait!
