David Holmes is the latest person tapped for a Late Night Tales compilation.
The Belfast composer, producer and DJ will release his entry on October 21st and it’ll feature some new and rare music including collaborations with BP Fallon and Jon Hopkins, a “reading” of 10cc’s ‘I’m Not In Love’ by Holmes-produced Song Sung.
In the sampler below, you will hear Stephen Rea reading an extract from Seamus Heaney’s AENEID BOOK VI Elsewhere Anchises.
“I walk a lot. It’s amazing for listening to music: your phone or your emails aren’t going and you’re just in the forest listening to music. It’s so intimate. Anyway, I was listening to the KLF’s Chill Out album, which still sounds amazing, but it triggered an idea with concrete sounds through travelling and movement. And one of the things I was trying to do was to use this idea not just break up the moods but also as a metaphor for moving through life and arriving in different destinations or arriving at different stages in different parts of your life.
Memory, Love, Living, Family, Friendship, Healing, Death and The Afterworld are some of the themes I wanted to explore within this record. Although these strong themes and tracks are personal to me, I also wanted it to be a great listen that was unpredictable yet had a seamless flow a journey that was personal to me yet to the listener a great compilation of music that they may or may not have heard before. I hope I’ve succeeded in the latter.”
