PASADENA, Calif., Aug. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, Sept 7 at 8pm, Los Angeles College of Music (LACM) will welcome Grammy Award-winning songwriter, artist and producer Daniel Lanois to their ongoing "Let's Talk Music" series to share his outlook on the modern music industry and offer wisdom from his accomplished career to students, alumni and fans. The event will take place at The Garage at LACM (300 S Fair Oaks Ave, Pasadena, CA 91105). It is free and open to the public by RSVP (space is limited). The event will also be streamed live online at www.lacm.edu/letstalkmusic.
Daniel Lanois is a name that deserves to be mentioned alongside the finest sonic experimenters of the 20th century – and the 21st century too. Whatever you're listening to – whether it be acoustic or electronic, roots or futurist, underground or pop – if you listen closely you'll hear traces of the sonic signatures of Daniel Lanois. And what's more he's still experimenting as eagerly as he ever has, creating music as beautiful and new as ever before. It is a refusal to sit still, a constant hunger for new ideas and techniques, that has defined both his work as a world renowned producer and his solo works. Over the years, he has worked with artists such as U2, Bob Dylan, Brian Eno, Emmylou Harris, Neil Young, Willie Nelson, and many others. Most recently, he has hit a rich creative seam, so apparent on the gorgeous, weightless album Goodbye to Language, which comes out Sept. 9.
This exclusive event is a part of LACM's "Let's Talk Music" series, an event hosted regularly for students and alumni of LACM, and for the music-minded community in Southern California. Other musicians previously featured in the series include producer Glen Ballard, Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas, Joe Walsh, Ziggy Marley, Moby, Dave Wakeling, Gavin Rossdale, Stewart Copeland and Linda Perry.
General public may RSVP to attend at www.lacm.edu or by calling 626.568.8850.
