Purchase tickets to the premier of The Living Coast, August 2 at the Stateside Theater HERE

   The Living Coast features film by Anlo Sepulveda and archival photography of the Great Galveston Hurricane, the deadliest storm in US history.  Surfers and sailors, shrimpers and oilmen, poets and scientists all share their stories in interviews about this complicated region of serene beauty, vast industry, and incredible contradictions.  For the premier concert, actor Robert A. Kraft will be joining Montopolis on stage to tell the story of the 1900 Galveston Hurricane.        
    Montopolis has reunited with Anlo Sepulveda, co-director of the film Yakona  (winner of the 2014 SXSW audience award) and drone pilot Reagan Jobe (Outkast FPV)  to create some truly original and stunning imagery.  A native of Corpus Christi, Anlo's knowledge of the region combined with Reagan's drone flying virtuosity has enabled them to capture never before seen perspectives of beaches and wetlands, oil rigs and refineries, epic kite surfing, and industrial fishing boats - a complete visual portrait of life on the coast. 

"This is exquisitely beautiful and consistently engaging music, made all the more extraordinary by the way Montopolis presents it in live performances" 
Peter Blackstock, Austin American Statesman

Montopolis turns west Texas tales into song in this concert premier inspired by Big Bend National Park. The performance weaves science, history, poetry and personal stories into music inspired by the land and the people that have walked upon it.  Music and story are accompanied by breathtaking video that captures the epic grandeur of the vast high desert wilderness.        

"By highlighting instruments not typically associated with contemporary classical music, Sherburn and his collective have created a perfect soundtrack for the movie playing out your car window on any drive west of San Angelo." 

 - Texas Monthly 

"Though envisioned as a multimedium experience of Southwestern idyllics, the transcendent compositions of Music for Enchanted Rock stand alone."

- Austin Chronicle
