I crafted this experiential film to communicate the experience of a summer monsoon storm encounter one night along the 25-mile length of the Arivaca Road. The drive that night yielded 30-minutes of recorded video that was edited-down to 2-minutes of nature’s fury. Road Storm is a memory of that violent and mesmerizing storm.
The sound design I created for the work, came primarily from audio field recordings of the summer monsoon storms in southern Arizona; and also the sounds recorded inside the vehicle during the filming. The combination of the audio layered over the storm imagery creates a powerful sensory dynamic.
