Moses Sumney shares concert film ‘Live from Blackalachia’

Moses Sumney has shared his cinematic concert film, Live from Blackalachia.

The one-take performance film was recorded in Western North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. The new collection features the previously released “In Bloom (In the Woods)” and “Bystanders (in space).”

“In early 2020, my band and I gathered in my home in Western North Carolina, living and breathing together, re-arranging songs from my first 2 albums into a live odyssey,” Sumney explains.

Watch Live from Blackalachia below.

Sumney continues of the film:

“As the year unfurled and the international tour was wiped off the cosmic schedule, I realized there should be some kind of record, a copper snapshot of those musical arrangements and the turmoil and beauty of that year. So we took to the Appalachian mountains and filmed and recorded Live From Blackalachia.

“The band congregated in the heat of a lulled summer, with a mere 10 days to learn and re-learn the music. Drums, keys, guitars, double bass, violin, saxophones, trombone. Bees, birds, squirrels, crickets, frogs. Over the course of two days, we filmed 14 songs, totally live, the trees as our audience, the grasshoppers our background singers.

Live from Blackalachia is a wild imagining of what can happen when we seek not just to reclaim nature, but to re-integrate with it.”

The album portion of the collection is out on December 10th.
