It features an abstract montage of colors, textures, natural and structural elements that are inspired by the landscape in and around the Jurupa Hills of Riverside County. In addition, the artist has composed experimental music to accompany the visual imagery of this project. Chatkupt will be performing a live score in adjunct to the video on June 27 at 7 PM. The event is free and open to the public.
