Daniel Lanois "Deconstruction" (video)
Published Aug 18, 2016Ambient master Daniel Lanois has given us another taste of his much-anticipated Goodbye to Language. The latest breathtaking, ear-soaking instrumental to be released ahead of the full album is titled "Deconstruction," and it's been revealed via a music video.
As with many other works, the song finds the Canadian experimenter working alongside longtime collaborator Rocco DeLuca. Together, they deliver calming, oscillated waves of machine music. Above this, Lanois offers up a light blue haze of lithium-laced pedal steel guitar.
Visually, we see the music being made via an extremely fish-eyed camera lens, which rests high up above Lanois's work station.
