The debut work by Sun Belt is a genre-bending almanac depicting the rise and fall of a company town that, within the span of a century, becomes a desert wasteland. A full-length album of dusty, surreal songs by the Sun Belt music ensemble both informs and is informed by a blend of transcripts, photographs, micro fictions, wildlife plates, film stills, costume designs, environmental reports and other invented artefacts. The result is a multimedia portrait of a mythic place closer tohome than we'd like-and an artistic collaboration that defies categorization. Sun Belt is an interdisciplinary group of writers, musicians, illustrators, video and theatre artists whose mission is to make innovative, experimental works that aspire to the visionary. A History is the group?s first release. The songs: Fort Iquique North Country of Madmen Karnas Camarena Plateau So Far the Stars Champion the Wonder Horse Daddy-o Cabalcor Pale Destroyer Red Bird Fort Iquique South
