The Ocean played Germany’s Summer Breeze Festival in Dinkelsbuhl last month and filmed their set for a forthcoming live DVD (yay!). Being the generous chaps that they are they’ve released the video of “The Origin of God” above as a teaser.
Speaking about said release:
“…. and yes, that DVD. We’ve been speaking about it for a while now, right? Well, be assured that it IS still coming. The project has grown tremendously over the course of the past months. We have filmed the Heliocentric record release show in March 2010, the show at the museum for musical instruments in Berlin in January 2011, the show at the London Garage on our last tour and Summer Breeze Festival in their entirety. We’ve also had our documentary filmer Alex with us most of the time, and he has pointed his one eye on everything we’ve been through, the good, the bad and the vulgar…
Alex will also be with us for the upcoming tours. We have collected so much quality material by now that we’re thinking about turning everything into a documentary movie more than a mere music DVD. By the end of the year the “collection” process will be finished and we will spend the first half of next year on finalizing everything.”
I was only half-aware of something like this going on, and that the footage from The Garage might be included is especially exciting as I was there. Again, yay!
