Payton MacDonald: Sonic Divide
The Sonic Divide: States film features 30 commissioned scores from 30 different composers performed during MacDonald’s mountain bike journey along the Great Divide. Each musical work was scored specifically for his voice or found percussion instruments like logs, rocks, or the bicycle itself.
Four paintings by Duluth painter Kenneth D. Johnson accompany the film. The pieces are based on photos taken in each of the four states Payton traveled through. Kenneth’s paintings introduce performance footage from each state, coupled with still images, to give the viewer a sense of the grandeur of making music in these incredible natural settings.
