This work focuses on the prayer flags located at the Shambhala Mountain Center in Red Feather Lakes Colorado. What I find interesting about prayer flags is they are not prayers to a God, but prayers and good will sent out into the world. The song is also prayers of good will to others. Custom software was created that utilized frame difference to isolate flag movement for video feedback, allowing the flags movement and color to emanate outward, a process that conceptually reinforces the flags intentions.Sound Design by Karl Erickson.
