Hi there Mr Lanois!
I´m a big fan of your music and congratulations to your last album, looking forward to see the film.
I frequently uses and record the Omnichord and I´m curious about how you record this great instrument?

Best regards

The Omnichord is one of many instruments that create the sound of an entire band. My fascination with these instruments started long before the Omnichord. The all on-board home entertainment organ was the birth of it all. Check out Timmy Thomas' Why Can't We Live Together. I believe he's sitting at a Lowrey organ with an onboard beat box. The song is killin'. The Omni plugged into a bass amp can give you pretty amazing bottom end.
