Swiss musician Simon Berz and Dutch artist Kaspar Koenig came to New Orleans in the fall of 2010 for a sound art project, building instruments from trash and inviting local improvisers to join him for concerts. The docuementary "Liquid Land" takes these concerts, interviews with the musicians and scenes of New Orleans’ street life, rituals and celebrations to explore the confluence of music, the creative process and the energy that draws these musicians and keeps them here in the wake of disaster.
"Liquid Land" is a unique look at the creative music scene of New Orleans, the social factor of music and the art of improvisation.
