For Record Store Day 2017, Cinewax is teaming up with influential California-based board sports and lifestyle brand Volcom to release the original soundtrack to their 2015 surf film Psychic Migrations. Directed by multifaceted surf filmmaker Ryan Thomas, Psychic Migrations was shot on Super 16-mm film & Red Digital Cinema in the West Indies, East Indies, Australia, Polynesia, and the Americas. The global scope of the film is complimented by an international cast of surfers, including Yago Dora, Ryan Burch, Ozzie Wright, Dusty Payne, Mitch Coleborn, and Kelly Slater, among others.
To match the cinematic poetry of this psychedelic surf journey, a suitable soundtrack was necessary: proto-New Age piano music by Gurdjieff / de Hartmann, drone jams from Bitchin Bajas and Al Lover, and garage-psych from Thee Oh Sees, Cave and White Fence. An artistic synthesis of eclectic music, pulsating surf action, and mesmerizing scenery, this highly acclaimed film builds on and advances the rich history of surf flicks. The package is completed with a deluxe gatefold jacket, housing double pink vinyl and a digital download card for both the film and soundtrack. Limited to 1,000 copies worldwide.
