Precious Child Scores Neil Gaiman Biopic with ‘Escape’
Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Coraline) is known for his darkly atmospheric stories, and what better way to complement his story than with lushly layered, atmospheric instrumentals by enigmatic Industrial Composer and Producer Precious Child? Check out the full length album below and watch the brilliant documentary on Vimeo HERE.
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
