The Nearer the Fountain...
The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows
Through his work with Blur, Gorillaz, The Good, The Bad & The Queen (among others), it is needless to say that Damon Albarn is a major figure of popular music and a brilliant jack-of-all-trades, with talents ranging from musician to singer, composer, arranger and producer. He is never where you might expect him, and now presents an original work linked to his adopted country of Iceland. In this work of sound and vision, inspired by the poem The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows by English romantic John Clare, Icelandic nature is the hero.
