Precious Child Channels Neil Gaiman Imagery into Instrumental Masterpiece, ‘Escape’


If you haven’t had a chance to check out the new Neil Gaiman biopic Dream Dangerously, get over to Vimeo and check it out.  In the meantime, check out Industrial artist Precious Child’s stunning instrumental album, much of which is part of the film’s score, Escape for a taste.

Since this was for Neil’s biopic I decided to consciously approach it as a storytelling exercise. I’m a huge reader with a particular affinity for mythology, folk tales, and legends. In my little circle of personal associates I’m known for my ridiculously fragile and sizable pile of antique Arabian Nights books. Obviously, Neil’s stories get along real well with me. I love the intensity, carnal elements, and scale of his books. My overall favorite is Sandman which I read start to finish non stop over two months of summer while holed up in an exes house. There’s a lot of violence, tragedy, and peril in his stories. There is also a lot of beauty and moments of comfort and intimacy.Precious Child
