This 80 minute film documents for the first time, what happens in a recording session by the guitar legend and composer John McLaughlin. Filmed over five days in a studio in India, you get an intimate view of the way great musicians work together and create new music with spontaneity and vitality.
For this 'meeting of the minds', McLaughlin invited some of the most outstanding instrumentalists including keyboardist Louiz Banks, drummer Ranjit Barot, electric sitarist Niladri Kumar, flautists Shashank and Naveen Kumar, percussionist Sivamani, vocalist Shankar Mahadevan, electric mandolinist U.Rajesh, and Hindustini slide guitarist Debashish Bhattacharya.
Through interviews with all the musicians, you get to know the different ways in which they approach John's compositions. In addition, you can choose to listen to an extra audio track with McLaughlin commenting on the entire recording.
This unique movie lifts the curtain on the making of music today.

So the first thing about this amazing film is it takes you right into the essence of what Floating Point is about, and will now short circuit that comprehension lag. I now totally get where every track is coming from. Furthermore, as many of the musicians on Floating Point are also familiar from the Remember Shakti discs, Remember Shakti - The Believer, Remember Shakti and Remember Shakti: Saturday Night In Bombay, this will require me to go back and revisit those releases, which at the time I admired and respected, but which didn't seem to have the essence of the original Shakti. I will revisit them with a view this time to appreciating them in their own right.
The other thing that shines through is what an amazing being McLaughlin is.Read more ›
The DVD gives an amazing insight into the genius of McLaughlin's compositions, his ability to find outstanding talent and nurture it and the fact that his music has never stopped evolving.
