Rich Aucoin reveals ‘The Little Prince’ Sync

Rich Aucoin reveals 'The Little Prince' Sync, Aucoin's Ephemeral and the visuals of Will Vinton

Rich Aucoin has long been recognized for ambitious records and the video elements that accompany his music. Aucoin has Announced today, his new video, a sync between Aucoin’s album Ephemeral and the visuals of Will Vinton based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novella The Little Prince. Think of it as Aucoin’s take on the Darkside of The Rainbow.

Championing love, friendship, and importance of imagination The Little Prince inspired Aucoin throughout the writing of Ephemeral, lyrically exploring the universal themes of the ephemerality of human existence, solitude, and the importance of relationships. “Love and the spreading of it is the most important thing in life,” says Aucoin. “The greatest part of this realization is that it’s totally attainable to anyone to create within them unlike external goals like wealth, power, knowledge, and pleasure. The Little Prince debunks the seekers of each of these pursuits on their various isolated planets throughout his galactic adventure. It’s a great parable for how to live well with just the right amount of ambiguity to include everyone in its message for love. Ambiguity I think is key for maximum human connection as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry said, ‘words are the source of misunderstandings.’”

Produced by Rich and his drummer, Joel Waddell, with some songs mixed Mick Guzauski (Daft Punk / Random Access Memories), Ephemeral offers 10 energetic pop songs with gang vocal shouted choruses of size up to 20,000 people. The album is out now in Canada via Bonsound and is also available in the USA via Young Enthusiastic Americans, and in France via Platinum Records.
