Floating Points (Live)

Breaking away from making electronic music on his laptop, Sam Shepherd–the DJ, producer and composer otherwise known as Floating Points–engineered his debut album Elaenia while deejaying in cities across the globe and working towards his PhD in neuroscience. Elaenia draws inspiration from classical, jazz, electronic music, soul and Brazilian popular music. The record epitomizes Sam Shepherd the Eglo label boss, ensemblist, producer, scientist, and visual artist. He created its artwork for by making a harmonograph from scratch, and setting it to various light sources that responded to the album track “For Marmish.” Every DJ set he’s performed, every talent he has produced, every composition he has written are thought of as precursors to Elaenia–a dazzling score which puts Shepherd in the spotlight as a composer who has produced an album that bridges the gap between his rapturous dance music and formative classical roots.
