Washed Out 'Exploring the Sounds of Paracosm' mini-documentary (part 1)
Published Jul 18, 2013Before Random Access Memories, Daft Punk and the Creators Project teamed up for a string of hype-building trailer videos that definitely had the intended effect. Now, the Creators Project have launched another album preview project with chillwave guru Washed Out in advance of his new LP, Paracosm.
Exploring the Sounds of Paracosm is a two-part mini-doc that examines the diverse instrumentation found on Washed Out's new album. In the clip, Greene visits the Audities Foundation in Calgary to play around with instruments and talk shop with the organization's David Kean.
Paracosm is out on August 13 on Sub Pop. It features more than 50 instruments, resulting in a more lush and diverse sound than we're used to hearing from the synth-minded artist. For a taste of what it sounds like, check out "Don't Give Up."
