Baauer: Searching For Sound Coming Soon

To the more than 1 billion people who have created or watched “Harlem Shake” videos, Baauer is best known as the man behind the song. But he is no one hit wonder. Collaborating with Just Blaze he has remixed Jay-Z, Disclosure, The Prodigy and AlunaGeorge; and a dense tour schedule including a residency at LIGHT nightclub in Las Vegas have kept Baauer on an upward trajectory.

Baauer has also been readying his debut album by traveling to the UAE, and to the volcanoes, temples and metropolises throughout Japan, in search of sounds that will inspire his new music and push him beyond the shadow of “Harlem Shake.”

In the 26-minute documentary, “Baauer: Searching For Sound,” viewers get an inside look at how Baauer transforms these found sounds from raw files to record. Joining him on the journey, and back in the studio in New York, is his friend, and Red Bull Music Academy alumnus Nick Hook who is helping with production on the album. Among their many discoveries while exploring Japan, Baauer and Nick visit Hokkaido and encounter some of the last remaining Ainu – an indigenous tribe of Japan.
