Gli Animal Collective hanno annunciato l’uscita della colonna sonora al documentario intitolato “Crestone“, che verrà pubblicata da PVOD il 16 febbraio.
Il film è stato girato da Marnie Ellen Hertzler nel deserto di Crestone, Colorado, e vede come protagonisti dei “SoundCloud rapper” i quali decidono di isolarsi dal mondo, coltivare marijuana e comporre musica per internet. Quando un giorno un loro amico li raggiunge per girare una pellicola sulla loro vita, la realtà e la finzione si mischiano fino a scomparire l’una nell’altra.
Brian “Geologist” Weitz e Josh “Deakin” Dibb hanno parlato così dell’esperienza:
Living in the Sonoran Desert in the early 00’s had a long-lasting and profound effect on me, especially after multiple years in New York City. Since then I’ve had a vague idea for a sound that would reflect that experience, but no project ever led me to it. The images, sounds, stories, and structures created and documented in “Crestone” finally did. Many thanks to Marnie, her crew, Dead God, the land, and as always, my brother Josh for the inspiration and opportunity to work on this project. - Brian
I met Marnie when I lived in New Orleans for a brief time in 2015 and we quickly became friends. When she approached me about scoring “Crestone” I was really excited about it. It felt really natural to ask Brian to team up on this project since we had already been collaborating on a handful of things as a duo in the previous year or so. Having wanted to score a movie for many years, this was an ideal first project to explore the process. For me, the initial phase of developing the ideas for this was just to pull up a scene and sit down at my piano and improvise to the energy I interpreted. In many cases this initial pass was recorded and used for the final composition. This process of using the images, characters, editing and practical sound as a sort of sheet music to play to was really freeing and inspiring. - Josh
