Published Mar 14, 2008After years of freaking people out with his video work, director Chris Cunningham is trying his hand at producing not cinematically, but musically. The English filmmaker, best known for his music video work with Aphex Twin, Björk and Portishead, will be producing the second album by UK band the Horrors.
Cunningham has previously worked with the gothier-than-thou act when directing the video for their "Sheena Is a Parasite. And according to the bands front-man Faris Rotter, they arent too worried about his lack of experience in the musical production realm.
"He hasn't done music production before but I think it'll be really special, Rotter told Xfm. "The results so far are really encouraging.
"The ideas that he has are really cinematic and there aren't really that many contemporary producers who have that kind of vision of their own and put that kind of stamp on something and I think he could be one of those.
"He wont approach things in the way that so many people will. He's really into the music we like. Yknow, My Bloody Valentine, Dead Can Dance and Squarepusher and I think he's gonna bring something to the new album that no one else will."
The Cunningham-produced album will be the follow-up to the Horrors 2007 NME-approved and hyped Strange House.
