In late August 2016, Floating Points and his band travelled to the Mojave Desert to write and rehearse before the start of their US tour.
Whilst visiting Joshua Tree National Park, they were struck not only by its physical beauty, but also by the sonic reflections from the rock formations; A unique combination of reverb, echo and phase shifting modulating the surrounding sounds of the landscape. The band took advantage of this environment to write and record some new music at the base of some of these natural sculptures, documented in a short film included within.
