The Sleep Of Reason Produces Monsters - How To Destroy Angels

From An Omen Ep_, this track is named after Francisco Goya’s “El sueño de la razón produce monstruos”.

Now their third project with the filmmaker is getting ready to hit cinemas, Gone Girl, with Atticus saying it’s ‘the best thing we’ve done’.

I feel like the music fits beautifully with the picture but it also feels like our most experimental work,’ he said.

'The process was different partly because Trent and I were working on it in between his Nine Inch Nails tour and there was something magical about that.' 

Starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike in the lead roles, with Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry making up the supporting cast, Gone Girl follows the plight of a husband who becomes accused of his wife’s murder after she goes missing under suspicious circumstances.

As one of only a select handful of people in the world to have seen the finished cut of the film - and loved the best-selling novel it’s based on - Atticus said audiences are in for a treat. 

'I like it when I go into a cinema and I'm not aware that I'm there, I'm totally involved in the film for two hours.

'With Gone Girl I sat down and suddenly the end credits were rolling, you just become so engrossed in it. 

'From the very first time I saw it I thought it was a superb film.

'From day one it seems like David has had a clarity of vision before he even picked up the camera.'

∟How To Destroy Angels_ Welcome oblivion (2013)

The visual direction of this album came about first from the concept of the record. Trying to express the anxiety of information overload, the end of mankind as both terrifying and transformative, apocalypse and evolution, etc. I was inspired by the way Trent and Atticus set up rules for themselves around the way they record music for each project, and the analog methods they were experimenting with for this record that tied into its themes. So I started looking for a visual analogy for that, and also a visual analogy for information overloading the pipeline it’s being sent through - of signals unable to display coherently. It led me down the road of experimenting with analog cables and old CRT monitors and VHS decks. The result was a set of rules I came up with for creating the visuals. As much of a pain in the ass the process is sometimes, it’s strangely freeing to work within constraints. Not only does it force a rigid visual consistency, it takes Photoshop out of the equation entirely (the CRT texture makes the images largely uneditable in post, besides color corrections). Sometimes there’s something extremely daunting about a blank document in Photoshop, because you can go absolutely ANYWHERE with it. Setting up some limitations has proved really useful.
