Explosions in the Sky Unveil Special Visual Collaboration Project: Scenes From The Wildnerness

On what is proving to be a whirlwind release day, Explosions in the Sky ardently unveil a surprise aural and visual art collaboration, Scenes from the Wilderness. Coinciding with the release of their first non-soundtrack album in five years, The Wilderness (Temporary Residence Ltd), Scenes from the Wilderness serves as both a visual companion to the record and a stand alone art project.

The band collaborated with multimedia designers CHIPS to add movement to nine still photographs taken by EITS guitarist Munaf Rayani. Rayani has served as  band documentarian for the past 16 years, and the photos he chose for this project represent snapshots from their relentless worldwide touring over that time period.

The result is a characteristically nuanced, and moving, emotional experience.

Adam Squires of CHIPS on working with Explosions in the Sky on this extraordinary project:
“We’ve been fans of EITS for years, so we were thrilled to work with them…the band gave us a folder of striking and mysterious photos from their worldwide excursions—cryptic travelogue. We chose one to go with each track, and worked with Eric Overton, an amazing animator and visual effects artist, to slowly alter and degrade it, turning it into a sort of moving painting.”

Scenes from the Wilderness is on view now at TheWilderness.space

Having just opened with the “riveting, triumphant” (AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN) performances at Austin’s Paramount Theater and already sold out venues in Los Angeles, Oakland, Philadelphia, Denver and Washington DC, The Wilderness tour has now added two shows in New York, as well as stops in Chicago and Boston. Don’t miss what the Austin Chronicle has professed as “This wasn’t just a gig. This was an arrival 16 years coming. This was Pink Floyd just before Live at Pompeii. This was the moment when EITS went from being Texas’ kings of post-rock to scene emperors.”

Fans had better move fast on grabbing their tickets to these legendary performances before they’re all gone.
