Ahead of the release of his live album Order Of Magnitude – Empath Live Volume 1 on 23rd October 2020 via InsideOutMusic, Devin Townsend has released a trailer for the release’s documentary.
Available as part of the Blu-ray edition of the album, the behind-the-scenes feature looks at the preparations for his Winter 2019 European tour and the filming of the live album. Captured on the penultimate date of his Empath album tour, this is the first volume in the trilogy where Townsend performed without backing tracks or click tapes. Instead, he was accompanied by an ensemble of musicians, a mirror ball hanging from the ceiling and an onstage tiki bar.
Townsend explains: “The whole objective was that I wanted to make that statement: This is by the seat our pants. Because it’s important to me to represent this hyper anal-retentive music that I’ve made over the years, but in a human way. Rather than it just being, ‘Well, here it is, perfectly done. I was overwhelmed by the fact that all these brilliant people that I have so much respect for were willing to come together and play this weird shit with me. I had these unique players and this interesting instrumentation that allowed us to interpret the music in different ways. It was clear to me that I could just have fun and be me and know that they would be effortlessly be able to follow that.”
