The City at Night is a multimedia mashup of words, electric guitar and still photography and live action video that I captured in my travels on the streets of Milwaukee, Chicago, Cleveland and Ocala, Florida.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: This film was originally produced as a companion piece to a 2016 group art exhibit called "Shifting Focus" featuring my nighttime urban landscapes with work by my friends Terry Nirva and Carol Erickson. Thanks to Brett Huus and Jill Kirkpatrick for video editing and production assistance! You can hear newly released alt remixes of the music track on my Bandcamp page. -Starling
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born in a small Wisconsin blue-collar town, Mike Starling ditched the assembly line for a long, sometimes circuitous career working with words, sound and images. His original music is heard on numerous recordings and soundtracks, and his stories and photos have been featured in books, films, mags and other media. Among his other interesting career moves, he has edited a beer magazine, played bass in a reggae band and sold potato chips door-to-door. Inspired by the life-altering events of 2020, he launched a new web-based project called I Remember Travel in January 2021.
