Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Few musicians have mastered the art of multi-channel sound as well as American composer Roger Reynolds, and now, thanks to the advances in home theater technology, home viewers can experience Reynolds' unique works just as the artist intended. With discreet information sent to all five channels, this release offers two of Reynolds' most memorable works. In "Watershed IV" Reynolds draws the viewer into his sonic world with seductive audio landscapes and interactive, multi-camera video. The second composition, entitled "Eclipse" is a creative collaboration with film and video experimentalist Ed Emswhiller. Additional interviews with the composer and artists offer a compelling look at the creative process.
