'Oil Drum Requiem' is a short film of one of the tracks and poems from "The Infinite and The Unknowable" released by Blink in the Endless on 22nd July 2016.
Gong choirs, ragged system violins, rusted electronics, liquid heave resonances, apocalyptic poetry and high-contrast photography: ‘TIATU’ is a visceral attempt to explore the fathomless mysteries of the divine. Using a mythical Ballardian sea voyage at its core, it evokes such diverse sources as Andrei Tarkovsky, Arvo Pärt, Tim Hecker, ‘A Book of Silence’, John Luther Adams, Terrence Malick, ‘Under the Skin’, Jon Hassell, ‘Selected Ambient Works, Vol. II’, Laurie Spiegel, Ansel Adams, Richard Skelton, the books of Revelation, Job and Daniel, Swans, John Sheppard and Hieronymus Bosch.
'TIATU' was painstakingly constructed over a six year period from hundreds of layers of played and heavily processed electric violin, percussion and electronics and it includes the final re-worked version of the title track originally used in the devastating closing scenes of the Film 4 / BFI / Studio Canal feature film ‘Catch Me Daddy’.
Daniel Thomas Freeman’s previous music includes the critically acclaimed debut solo album ‘The Beauty of Doubting Yourself’ (Home Normal), scoring the feature film ‘Catch Me Daddy’ (Film 4 / BFI / STUDIOCANAL) with Matthew Watson and numerous releases as part of Rameses III including ‘I Could Not Love You More’ (Type). TIATU is the first release on Blink in the Endless.
