Last month, BowieNet reported that David Bowie was working with Tony Visconti and up-and-coming New England band Rustic Overtones. Here is a brief update.
Earlier this week, Tony Visconti invited a few BowieNet staff to attend the final night in the studio with himself and Rustic Overtones. We were treated to several tracks and got to watch Visconti work his magic with the soundboards! (FYI: very impressive)
Bowie has made contributions on 2 songs for the forthcoming Rustic Overtones album, which is due out on September 28th, on Arista Records.
Here are a few words from Mike Garson abouthis collaboration with Billy Corgan on the"Stigmata" film score:
Composing the score with Billy Corgan was anextraordinary experience. We worked 28 daysstraight for 12 hours per day. Billy is an extremely creative and musically gifted artist. The interaction between us was superb. Each of our ideas and insights really coalesced into one unified effort.
In addition to the score, we also wrote the end credit theme, "Identify," which is performed by Natalie Imbruglia on the soundtrack.
