You're welcome. Presently Scott Walker is the only other artist I know of whose work is as awe-inspiring to me as that of Thomas Ligotti. And there certainly seems to be an affinity between Scott's later work (especially 'The Drift') and Ligotti at his bleakest. Imagine what a collaboration between the two would be like.



This fan-made video for one of Scott's earlier songs is quite something (in full-screen): http://vimeo.com/31110838

Re: Scott Walker

Scott Walker - Bish Bosch
Well that's my Christmas present to myself sorted. It's only been six years since The Drift - the Stanley Kubrick of music is really cranking them out now. Apparently Bish Bosch contains a kind of Christmas song, though I daresay it'll be as jolly and comforting as the skeleton of last year's Santa falling down the chimney.
We're also promised "thick silences."

Just pre-ordered the double LP. Thanks - I almost can't believe this is out so soon.

Check out the Pola-X soundtrack, if you haven't already, it's wonderful.


The melodic line dropping through that major seventh chord into the parallel minor is heartbreakingly beautiful:


And there's terror too, of course:


Anyone catch his uncredited appearance in Holy Motors?

Why don't minstrels
go from house
to house
howling songs
the way they
used to?

No. I saw the movie at the cinema but didn't notice Scott or even know he was in it. Carax clearly has good musical taste - I was pleased to hear a Sparks song in Holy Motors.
I've got the Pola X soundtrack but I must admit I haven't seen the movie.
