Innovation and inspiration trickles down through generations and when the pioneers collaborate in a cross generational project there is a timeless spark that reverberates through the ether. Band of Frequencies have been cultivating those sparks through a long term collaboration with one of the greatest legends of oceanic cinematography and surf craft design, George Greenough.
Georges seminal surf film ‘The Inner Most Limits of Pure Fun’ influenced a whole generation of filmmakers. It was filmed in the late 1960’s and featured the first ever footage taken from inside the tube, giving surfers and non-surfers alike the unique perspective from the inside out on film. George captured those shots on his own hand crafted, custom made waterproof housing for an ex army issue 16mm film camera. He filmed whilst riding either his handcrafted high-tech ‘Spoon’ surf craft called 'Velo' or an inflatable surf mat.
The Innermost Limits film also documents the shortening of surfboards due to Georges surfing and design influence and features the first examples of his flexible high aspect ratio surfboard fins (as seen in this clip) modeled off fish fins that revolutionised modern surfboard performance and surfing period. He went on to film for Hollywoods ‘Big Wednesday’, created 'Crystal Voyager' and also collaborated with Pink Floyd on ‘Echoes’ that was used as part of their groundbreaking live show for years.
Shannon Sol Carroll and Band of Frequencies have worked with George Greenough creating soundtracks for two short films, 'Deep Tube Riding' and Wipeout', over the last two years which then lead to this collaboration for the bands latest single ‘All I’ve Found’. The film was cut and edited by George himself and features previously unreleased footage from his archives filmed in Australia and California in the late 60’s.
Having just recently previewed the film clip down the Californian coast as part of the Transparentsea Voyage (transparentseavoyage.com) and at the North Shore Surf Film Festival in Hawaii, Band of Frequencies are stoked to be officially releasing it Worldwide for your pleasure and edification.
It will also be screening live at Bleach* Festival for 'Retrospect' in Currumbin on Feb 17th and Noosa Festival of Surfing on March 12th.
