video :: King Midas Sound / Fennesz - 'Lighthouse (Version)'
London dub outfit, King Midas Sound, led by Kevin Martin (The Bug) is set to release a full length LP entitled, Edition 1, on Ninja Tune featuring Austrian guitarist and sound artist Christian Fennesz. The unique album collaboration will be the first installment of four editions to come in the next several years, where Martin, Roger Robinson and Kiki Hitomi will collaborate with a different artist on each edition. This is super exciting as they the delve deep into the art of collaboration, something that they are definitely not strangers to.
Pitchfork recently premiered their official video for 'Lighthouse (Version)' that was directed & shot on 16mm film by Paul Clipson. Clipson reimagines the track visually blending light shapes and collaging drifting imagery in a sporadically serene manner, perfect for the sonic soundscape KMS and Fennesz have constructed. Check it out below. Also check out their second single 'Waves', to get a further tease into what this first edition is going to be all about. Expect this and more.
Edition 1 is out on Ninja Tune September 18th - For tracklist and pre-order it here. You can stream the whole album now via Crack Magazine.
