Tx: Nothing Part 2 now online on LoopzOfficial youtube channel

For those who missed Part 1, you can find it here. Part 2 is below and Part 3 is here.Subscribe to the youtube channel to keep updated.


TX : Nothing is a 45 minute film by Nick Waplington which was broadcast on BBC2 on Thurdsday 29th July 1999. Orbital’s music accompanied the film that was described by its makers as an “existential exploration of the journey, a modern take on the road trip”. Orbital’s music was based around sounds-effects as opposed to their normal song/track structures. One section incorporated the track “I think its Disgusting” (UK Green album) but with additional effects and beats.

    Thanx for sharing this film, Steve! Actually never thought that see it someday. Really was pleased and surprised to hear monorail and waving not drawning in it. As a hole picture takes me back in time with more common and easy life movements (at once Lush video comes to mind :)) with ™ Orbital’s synth sounds guided. Nice.

    Living with loopz 11 years and still keep finding such great surprises here! I hope you and the band will show us a lots of them in future.
    Best regards from Russia. Good luck!
