Sponsored by Amoeba MusicThe cover art to Flesh And Machine – the new album by gifted musician, renowned producer and ambient pioneer Daniel Lanois – contains a curious image: a baby with cybernetic antennae. The child represents Lanois himself. He explains: “The cover shows a boy who is looking for something that’s never been heard before. He’s my little seeker, he represents the bit of me that’s always in the laboratory experimenting, looking for new sounds and sensations.” But the image is apt in another way. Flesh And Machine, his third album for ANTI-, represents nothing short of a total artistic rebirth. Lanois has been involved in playing, recording and producing music for four decades now. In that time, he helped push the ambient genre forward into celestial new territory as Brian Eno’s foremost protégé; he has recorded landmark albums for U2 and Peter Gabriel and has helped to revitalize the sonic dimensions of Bob Dylan and Neil Young. But this marks the first time he has truly deployed every sonic weapon in his arsenal and attempted to break virgin ground in support of his own music. The album bristles with new ideas. The softly spoken Canadian spent countless hours processing a very limited array of rock instruments – steel and electric guitars, piano, drums and human voice – to create a futuristic and near infinite sound palette. Please join us as we welcome Lanois to the Clive Davis Theater to discuss his impressive career, the making of the new album and how he continues to raise the spirit of his music and open up doors to the unknown.  Moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli, Lanois will also take questions from the audience and will perform.
