Richard Reed Parry has released his innovative 360° video for the new song “Lost in the Waves” from his upcoming album Quiet River of Dust Vol. 2: That Side of the River; watch it HERE. The video’s footage was captured at Montreal’s Satosphère last fall as part of a live dome experience that pairs the album’s music with 360º visuals.
“Lost in the Waves” is a story about a boy who goes to the ocean with his parents; they fall asleep on the beach, he walks into the ocean “and transforms in some magical, nebulous way,” says Parry. “What separates us from dissolving into the experience around us? It’s a feeling I’ve definitely had many times, where the boundaries of self and world are permeable to the point of disorientation. So much of this record is about being this young person in an older people’s world of music and song, this folk music community where the torch is passed, and losing my father at a young age, and being completely disoriented by that. This record, the songs are also referencing that nebulous psychic territory when you lose your most familiar world when the village of your childhood disappears and you try to relocate yourself in a different one.”
Parry collaborated on the “Lost in the Waves” video with 4-VU. 4-VU is a new digital platform showcasing innovation in live performance and storytelling. Working with artists, arts organizations and the creative industries worldwide, 4-VU nurtures an international arts community committed to cutting edge performances, storytelling, and digital media.

Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
