TRANSLATE (Chris Mcclean - 2019)

Translate, the second album from celebrated composer CJ Mirra, is the official soundtrack to the latest surf movie created in collaboration with multi-award winning filmmaker Chris McClean and the bedrock of their acclaimed audio-visual experience. [read more about the live experience here] Released November 2020, Translate is an ode to the raging North Atlantic that sculpts the landscape, the customs and the surfing tribe that call these European shores home. 

The album unites ethereal soundscapes and rising orchestral movements with sublime electronic excursions, manipulated samples and heavy, lo-fi moments to transport the listener on an immersive and unrestrained journey across the continent taking in the coastlines of France, Spain, Ireland, England, Scotland and beyond. “We set out to make a soundtrack rather than a score,” explains CJ Mirra of the project that has confirmed his status as ‘the sound of cold water surfing’. “ This gave us freedom to mirror the changes in the locations, the waves and the surfers, imbuing the music with the tastes, textures and sonics to reflect the landscapes and shifting oceans, capturing the pan-European scope of the film.” 

The title track Translate (released 21/08) is cinematic while collaborations with the likes of renowned surfer/ musician Lee-Ann Curren have taken the music into new, sonic territories. “We recorded with Lee-Ann at Abbey Road – she has the coolest voice and she sings on a couple of the tracks and plays some guitar. Sans Raison (released 11/09) with her layered melody and French language vocal, is two minutes of high-energy, beat-based, psych-pop with distorted bass lines and spiralling, fuzzy guitars. Our cover of the track Horses (released 25/09) is a traditional arrangement while Narnia (released 30/10) is a gritty, dark improvisation on a number of bowed metal objects summoning the industrial tone reflected in the visuals.”

#HEADWIND HATERS (Chris Mcclean, 2018)

Travel slow. Put down your phone. Take in your surroundings. Smell the wind. Taste the rain. Feel the sun that escapes the clouds. That was the plan.

We rode around 400kms and rode up some bloody big hills, probably not Tour du France big but when towing your lives, boards and supplies behind you in a trailer they were bloody big, and bloody painful. We took in our surroundings and tasted the peat, we felt more aware, we rode around spiders crossing the road, we watched as butterflies fluttered beside us and everyone we passed said hello even the sheep. In Stornaway someone told me ‘There are no happy cyclists on Lewis’ well, even as we cycled into 50mph headwinds which turned into brisk offshores propelling us to the waves, we all had big smiles behind the grimaces.
Original score: Lee-Ann Curren /  + CJ Mirra “Fly A Kite” (song 1)

Samuel J. Fell writing in Rolling Stone gave it 4/5 stars calling it "an incredible soundtrack to a stellar film." The Sydney Morning Herald's Bernard Zuel praised the album writing "The beauty of the new soundtrack is how it gels with but also expands on the spirit of the original." Meredith McLean of the AU.
