Watch: Floating Points to soundtrack new short film ‘Reflections - Mojave Desert’

Floating Points to soundtrack new short film ‘Reflections - Mojave Desert’

The trailer for the new film, out in June, is available to watch now.

Ever one to go big on bonkers ideas, Sam Shepherd - aka Floating Points - has announced that he’s set to soundtrack a new short film called ‘Reflections - Mojave Desert’.

The film was created in collaboration with director Anna Diaz Ortuño, and the soundtrack is set to feature entirely new compositions, recorded out in the desert itself. The 27-minute piece, comprised of five tracks, will be released on 30th June via Pluto (the label, not the planet).

Speaking of the project in a press release, Shepherd says: “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.”

A trailer for ‘Reflections’ is available to watch now.
