The recently released La Dispute documentary film Tiny Dots is now having it’s official soundtrack released by the band with a special vinyl release on Record Store Day (April 16, 2016). For those unable to obtain a vinyl copy, the soundtrack will receive a digital release on April 22, 2016. In addition to the announcement, the band is now streaming one of their original compositions for the documentary, titled “C” via soundcloud.
“In the last few years I’ve become quite fascinated with the relationship between film and sound so, having the opportunity (if even only on a small scale), I proposed to the others that we should try our hand at scoring the documentary ourselves,” explains La Dispute drummer Brad Vander Lugt. “Given that most of us live in different places around the globe now, our collaborative process needed an overhaul, but we eventually found something that worked. Chad and Adam would start an idea (be that a motif, loop, or sometimes an entire movement), then send them my way, where I would add to, subtract from, or reconstruct them into something new. Jordan’s voice even makes an appearance once or twice.”
In the broadest sense, the record you have in your hands is the result of a documentary about our band called Tiny Dots. Maybe you’ve seen it? Side A could be called “Soundtrack”, and perhaps we call side B “Live Performance”.
