Attention, Filmmakers: Join Atom Egoyan, Mary Harron and Other Directors in New Music/Film Project

Attention, Filmmakers: Join Atom Egoyan, Mary Harron and Other Directors in New Music/Film Project

Grammy Award-winning musician, producer and engineer Daniel Lanois has recorded albums for U2, Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan and Neil Young. A protege of Brian Eno, Lanois will release his upcoming solo album, “Flesh and Machine” on October 28. In support of the album, Lanois has partnered with Robert Milazzo of The Modern School of Film to present an original video described as “a breakthrough union of moving-media, sonic design and social architecture.”

Lanois and The Modern School of Film have enlisted a select number of established international filmmakers to create visual works inspired by the new sonic frontier surveyed in Flesh and Machine, including Atom Egoyan (“The Sweet Hereafter”), Mary Harron (“American Psycho”), Wally Pfister (“The Dark Knight”), Jim McKay (“Breaking Bad”) and Ondi Timoner (“A Total Disruption”). They have all contributed short-form works to the series along with other filmmakers who will be announced soon.

Lanois and The Modern School of Film are now seeking up-and-coming filmmakers and artists to contribute and submit films for this one-of-a-kind multi-dimensional hybrid of sound-as-media project. Lanois and the Modern School of Film will curate this project and select three of the best films from these submissions to be used alongside the aforementioned directors for the promotion of the album, international screenings and within the live performance setting on Lanois’ 2014/2015 tour in support of the album. Find out more about the project and the submission process here.
