Tradewind: The Wavesailing Film

"Alternatively titled Homoswavesailors, Jack McCoy’s 1984 film about the birth of windsurfing details, through the gaze of the sport as a pre-historic ancient ritual, the exploits of a few of the sports originators. Backing up the clear 80’s blue visuals of waves white washed wind blasted FX, is a variety of original pop and synth music made by the films’ composer, Chris Eggleton. There are no song titles, rather each track is spiced-up with wind and wave sound fx, which were originally meant to act as sound accents for wave sail action in the film. The pop songs are beach-spiked hits, sounding like New Zealand’s Flying Nun rock, or blasted out prince chorus funk, but with added film sound fx, the essence of the silver screen begins to creep into the medium of audio disc! The synth music on Tradewinds sounds as if Tangerine Dream made inspirational beach movie tracks during the height of their Firestarter period. The mix is arranged by Pacific City, so that the summer doesn’t crash and burn. For the first time in history, Pacific City Sound Visions presents: the original motion picture soundtrack to Tradewinds on vinyl LP. Break down….. shake down….. ya busted……" - Spencer Clark
