New Music – Floating Points – Reflections – Mojave Desert – Silurian Blue
For the (supposed) hottest day of the year so far, why not go with a song about a desert! If you like your music swirling and slightly epic, then you’ve come to the right place. Sit back and listen to Sam Shepherd’s latest release. The album will be released later this month.
FLOATING POINTS – RELFECTIONS – MOJAVE DESERT out 30 June via Pluto
Floating Points began as the solo project of Sam Shepherd before it became clear the immersive, intricate nature of his music demanded expansion. Following his critically acclaimed debut Elaenia this is exactly what happened and Floating Points live became a band of incredibly talented musicians with Sam at the helm. Now, Floating Points has announced a new short film and soundtrack, featuring entirely new and unheard compositions – Reflections – Mojave Desert via Pluto on 30 June. The film, in collaboration with director Anna Diaz Ortuño, finds the ensemble in a thrilling sonic exploration of environment under an endless desert sky.
“Whilst we were out playing and exploring the area around us – the sound reflecting from the rocks, the sound of the wind between them, complete stillness at night and packs of roaming coyotes in the distance, it became apparent that we could use this as its own unique recording environment.” – Sam Shepherd, Floating Points
