In this collaborative City Squad project, street artist John Fekner (vocals, keyboards, percusssion, lyrics) wrote the song with musicians Dennis Lattmann (piano, synths) and Al Belfiore (Linn LM-1 drum sequence). Dedicated to Dennis G. Lattmann (1950-2008) with the thunderous heart.
John Fekner’s Trail Markers is a tribute to the Native American tribes who lived in harmony with the land on Long Island. The video was shot at various locations in Queens, NY and includes original footage from Enviromental Stencils 77-79, a collaboration with Fred Baca. Fekner considers Trail Markers, a video diptych, as it also features The Sight Of The Child. The first portrait is from the viewpoint of a Native American; the second is from a child from a distant bleak future.
