Parallax Sounds Now Available to Stream

 

Parallax Sounds, a film I wrote about in this space in 2011, is now available for streaming. The film is a documentary about the post-rock movement in Chicago during the 1990s.  Director Augusto Contento has a unique visual style, heavy on tracking shots. Parallax Sounds is as much about Chicago as it is about the musical movement. Although post-rock petered out around the turn of the century, but looking at the current state of rock music–stuck in place, ceding all creative energies to rap–it's a movement worth looking at again.
