About:
A chronicle of a one-night-only musical collaboration conceived by David Byrne celebrating color guard.

Inspired to showcase color guard – which involves troupes performing synchronized movements incorporating flags and rifles to live or pre-recorded music – Byrne commissioned ten musicians to create original songs/soundtracks to accompany a demonstration of the craft at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. The Ross brothers, together with an impressive assemblage of cinematographers, were there to capture the concert, as well as some behind-the-scenes details. The result is a visually vibrant concert doc, one very different from the duo’s past output, and likely best appreciated by music/performance doc fans.
