Here are past members John Krikawa, Russel Foster in the back, a wonderful flute player whose name we did not get yet and Tim Walters, who gave a small concert before the movie.
Different Skies is an international gathering of experimental musicians that took place at Arcosanti annually from 2003 to 2012. This was a week of intensive composing and rehearsals, creating an entire performance in six days. Each years effort culminated into a public performance at the end of the week, in the Colly Soleri Music Center. This was a well visited event each year, received with lots of enthusiasm by the public, as well as the crew at Arcosanti.
The movie was an insightful look at the dynamics of this festival including stories of how it all came together over the years, the day to day life on the Arcosanti stage, even stories of traveling to the event.
Terrific effort, Congratulations to Russel for this wonderful movie!
