Transparent Cities is a collaborative work of music and video by Madison Brookshire, April Guthrie, Michael Pisaro, and Cassia Streb. Reflecting and reporting on the city of Los Angeles, the performance examines the rhythms of the city using layers of video and sound. Its long, contemplative recordings, juxtaposed with live performance, become a meditation on the complex relationship between reality and recording, presence and absence, lived experience and re-presented time.
