Paris-based electronic artist Zimmer releases cinematic visuals for latest single ‘Landing’ via cult label Roche Musique. The slow building track is a bold and luminous start to the follow-up of his Ceremony EP. Showcasing the evolving musical process of Zimmer’s work, ‘Landing’ is the first track published from sessions taken place over the past 18 months. With epic visuals shot inside Virgo, the European Gravitational Waves observatory, located in Pisa, Italy, ‘Landing’ gives the perfect impression of what we can expect from Zimmer’s immersive live set for the first time this year.
In 2015, scientists detect Gravitational Waves for the first time. My father was one of them. This is the story of 30 years of research, the discovery of a lifetime. I’ve been profoundly moved by the discovery, and Landing is a homage track to my father. Gravitational waves are ripples in space-time. They are caused by the most violent events in the universe, like the fusion of two black holes. They happen million of light years away, yet are smaller than the size of an atom. It is mind-blowing we were able to detect them. Their Nobel prized discovery will allow us to observe the Universe in a way never before possible. We had the unique chance to be able to shoot inside Virgo, the European Gravitational Waves observatory, located in Pisa, Italy. Every we shot is real, I wanted to show this incredible machine that’s huge but very precise at the same time.
