The song also comes with an appropriately evocative film created by Jim McKay who has directed episodes of shows The Wire, Treme and Big Love. He explains his unique vision below: “The invitation to find or create images to accompany one of Daniel Lanois’ songs was exciting for me. I was especially drawn to the track, ‘Iceland,’ firstly because it’s absolutely beautiful but also because of its deceptive simplicity.”
Flesh And Machine was initially conceived as an ambient album, and tracks such as ‘Forest City’ take the classic Brian Eno albums that he worked on Ambient 4: On Land (1982) and Apollo: Atmospheres And Soundtracks (1983) as a wonderful bedrock to stand on to see the sonic future. The album bristles with new ideas. He spent countless hours processing an array of source sounds – steel and electric guitar, piano and human voice to create the sound palette that is Flesh and Machine.
Daniel Lanois is still raising that spirit of music and still opening up doors to the unknown.
