Moonage Daydream, which spans Bowie’s entire career, hits theaters and in IMAX on September 16th.
David Bowie explained that his late-1970’s work with producer Brian Eno forever shaped the way he thought about songs and music: “The whole idea of using a recording studio as an instrument, of not necessarily thinking that you have to be prepared totally before you go in; that accidents will happen and sometimes planned accidents work our really well. If there’s a bad note, you can layer that note several times with other instruments and suddenly that bad note sounds like an extraordinary piece of arrangement.”
David Bowie died on January 10th, 2016 — just two days after his 69th birthday — following a private 18-month battle with cancer.
