ONSTAGE: Danger Mouse

Let's be clear here: I don't know much about modern music. Not in a behind-the-scenes way, anyway. Witness: I didn't know Danger Mouse was behind Sparklehorse, Gnarls Barkley, and one of my favorite recent songs, Jack White's "Two Against One." 

What resonated most for me once I started looking Danger Mouse up was his take on music: that as a producer he views himself as musical director, assembling soundscapes the way a film director creates certain visual worlds. 

I'll list some clips below. I have nothing profound to say from the depths of my musical ignorance, only that I'm grateful Danger Mouse is at work, and that's he's behind so much of the music I do find myself pursing.
