The Invisible Light: Spells is the new album from GRAMMY and Oscar-winner, T Bone Burnett and the second in the Invisible Light trilogy – a fusion of trance, electronic, folk, tribal, and global music.
The new album from Grammy and Oscar winner Joseph Henry “T Bone” Burnett is the second release of his Invisible Lights trilogy. The invisible light is a fusion of trance, electronic, folk, tribal and global music. At the heart of this trilogy, which began with The Invisible Light: Acoustic Space, is technology and its advances throughout the last century, with radio, film, television, and the internet serving as central parts of our lives. In acoustic space, people hear from every direction at once, the center is everywhere, and there is no border.
In 2019, Burnett released Acoustic Space, the first installment of an experimental song cycle which explores the idea that society has been subject to a programming pandemic which is causing us to lose our ability to differentiate fact from fiction. Throughout his career, Burnett has also composed and produced the music for critically acclaimed HBO series True Detective, and his film work includes the five-time Grammy winning soundtrack for O Brother, Where Art Thou?, The Big Lebowski, Cold Mountain, The Hunger Games, Crazy Heart, and Walk The Line, among others. He’s collaborated with numerous artists including Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello and Roy Orbison, and won Album of the Year and Record of the Year Grammy Awards for Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ Raising Sand.
