No wait... Maybe it should have been points of view, actually...
Anyway, this is some old footage that I finally found the time to edit. A little surprise appearance in the middle for the Hot Sails Maui fans. Enjoy.
Two words on the soundtrack.
My favorite band Porcupine Tree's leader/founder/soul Steve Wilson is one of the most prolific musicians alive. He has hundreds of parallel projects going on and has collaborated with literally thousands of other bands/musicians. Blackfield is just one of his side projects: a collaboration with israeli musician Aviv Geffen. So far they've published two cds, the first one (where the song of the video belongs) is imo the best and it's a masterpiece.
Lately, in fact, I had it in my car stereo and I was lazy enough to leave it there for like... a month! Every time I went surfing or sailing I had the last song that was playing in the car in my head and that felt really good.
Then one day I said: ok that's too much, I need to change.
I randomly picked two cds from the big collection at home.
First one was a Social Distortion one (how the hell did I get one?). Put it in... lasted three minutes.
Second one was a classic: U2's Joshua Tree. That one lasted 40 minutes (i.e. one complete listen) and then had to go.
I put Blackfield I back in and it's still happily spinning since...
It's one of those rare cds with not a single bad song.
No wind these days in Maui, but beautiful, glassy, epic waves out of 330 on the north shore. Epic surfing, loving it.
The wind is supposed to come back in the weekend. Then, next week, the forecasted solid south swell is totally confirmed: it's going to last all week with a peak on Wednesday.
Life is good.
