squadra omega Lost Coast soundtrack (clear vinyl LP + DVD, £23.95)label: Boring Machines
Shot against the backdrop of California's most remote coastal region Lost Coast is a personal quest for transcendental values in troubled times and a quiet cinematic celebration of the beauty and immensity of the natural world. The film aims to remind us that today's mindless commoditization, cold efficiency and endless acceleration lead to a streamlined citizenry and to a spiritual vacuum. Equal parts film essay and travelogue 'Lost Coast' questions today's materialistic value system and reminds us that we do not exist outside of nature but that we in fact are nature. M.A. Littler, the film director, asked Squadra Omega to provide a soundtrack to this particular story and then used parts of the recorded sessions he was sent, in sparse bits all over the film. Recorded, mixed and mastered at OutsideInside studio in Montebelluna (TV), the entire recording session for the movie soundtrack is now available to widen the experience of this immersive long walk in total solitude. Rumbling guitar drones, musing flutes and thundering piano make up for an intense listening experience which adds a new layer to the film viewing, or just creates an alternative image sequence in your mind while listening. So slow down, reflect, take in the beauty and walk the shores of the Lost Coast with this sounds. The record comes with a DVD with the entire movie.
