All Watched Over

All Watched Over by The Enormous Shadow

 

I’m currently in the midst of recording my first album, and it can be difficult to listen to the same sounds and tunes over and over without losing the plot. So sometimes I take a break by quickly creating something totally unrelated. Here’s one that turned out OK.

 

It’s named after All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace, a documentary by Adam Curtis which was broadcast earlier this year and which I found fascinating. It is streaming now on Thought Maybe, and is highly recommended to anyone who’s interested in hearing some original thoughts about the relationships between technology, politics, philosophy, economics, genetics and ecology. Curtis also makes brilliant use of vintage and stock footage and has a truly singular approach to the use of music in documentaries.
