CARRIZO QUARTET: BITTERWATER BLACKBYRD 2006
<< Carrizo Quartet | Bitterwater Blackbyrd Still 1/8 >>
Bitterwater Blackbyrd moves between two sites, a ruined well and cachepond in Bitterwater Canyon along the San Andreas Fault and a low income housing developmen along the main coastal freeway, 101, above LA.

Memory of a lost stream world, premonition of instant slum; as if the blackbird's call comes back, again and again, from a deep future and past.

Ambient sound competes against roar of a future urban street, a fluid stream of strange lament answers the blackbird.

Shot in 24 p / on location central coast California.
