Kamasi Washington Debuts “Truth,” A Movement Off His Upcoming Album, Along With Stunning Short Film

first_imgKamasi Washington just released a brand-new movement off his latest EP due out in summer of this year. This new album titled Harmony of Difference contains six suites, one of which is the fourteen-minute-long “Truth,” which explore “the philosophical possibilities of the musical technique known as ‘counterpoint,’” something which Washington considers “the art of balancing similarity and difference to create harmony between separate melodies.”In addition to the release of “Truth,” Washington has also debuted a short film to accompany the fourteen-minute-long movement, which was directed by A.J. Rojas. The video is visually stunning, juxtaposing glimpses of life across Los Angeles perfectly to the transcendent jazz tune and further translating Washington’s ideas about counterpoint to a different medium. You can listen to “Truth” and watch the short film below.last_img
