Across two Chapters, 2017 saw Cosmic Gate release ‘Materia’ – the most significant and expansive album compendia in their long-playing history. Throughout key points of ‘Materia’s timeline, the ‘How’, ‘What’, ‘When’ and ‘Where’ of its coming-together was captured on film.
In ways intimate and surprising, inspiring, challenging and heartening, ‘Materia – The Documentary’ chronicles how the albums of ‘Materia’ were conceived, recorded and released.
Over its duration, Cosmic Gate provides the inside loop on their processes and methodology, whilst shedding new light on ‘Materia’s concept. Featuring behind-the-scenes material, it includes lesser-seen backstage footage, with Nic & Bossi sharing candid insights on how they manage the pressures of group and tour life. Contrastingly, the film also captures all the front-of-house thrill and thrall of the pair live, and in full flow. All naturally backed by the embryonic anthems of ‘Materia’.
Intercut between are clips from many of Materia’s best-known tracks, ‘AM2PM’, ‘Fall Into You’, ‘AR’, ‘Noom’ and ‘Dynamic’ among them. Through the documentary makers lens, you can get as up close and personal with its albums as it’s possible to get.
