10 Collaborations Between STEVEN WILSON & Other Musicians We Would Love to See

10 Collaborations Between STEVEN WILSON & Other Musicians We Would Love to See

We all know by now that Steven Wilson is releasing his new album To the Bone on August 18th via Caroline International, and we have already written about what to expect from it.

In this post, we let our imagination and “think loudly” about the musical collaborations we would love to see between Wilson and other musicians.

See the full list below.

Wilson-Gabriel

Steven Wilson & Peter Gabriel

The fact that Wilson lists Gabriel as one of his major influences, and especially after the recent announcement that the upcoming album To the Bone is inspired by Gabriel’s 1986 record So, gives us thoughts that the collaboration between the two would be absolutely fantastic.

Wilson-Fripp

Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp

Steven has remixed a few classic King Crimson albums already, enhancing the original recordings with his magic. Over the years, Robert Fripp has produced a number of great records both with King Crimson and his other endeavours, but the thought of locking the two in the same studio and working on something together—well, that would be something very interesting, wouldn’t it?

Wilson-Reznor

Steven Wilson & Trent Reznor

Steven has been very appreciative of Trent Reznor’s work, both as a producer and a musician. Both musicians love David Bowie’s work, both are very skilled when it comes to composition and production, and it could be said that both have the same opinion on social media. So put the two together and let them work.

Wilson-Gilmour

Steven Wilson & David Gilmour

Imagine the situation in which the guitar and voice of Pink Floyd and a guitar and voice of Porcupine Tree sit down to improvise. Both very experienced and proved as solo musicians, I’m quite sure that they would have a lot to offer together.

Wilson-Wyatt

Steven Wilson & Robert Wyatt

Wilson & Wyatt—already sounds like a fine name for a band. The musician who has been involved directly in popularising the Progressive Rock genre in UK in its early years. I’m not sure if Wyatt is still actively in music, but the notion of these two musicians working together is pleasant.

Wilson-Gira

Steven Wilson & Michael Gira

Thinking about what would this collaboration sound like leaves the question unanswered. It cannot be comprehended in which direction their music would go, but it doesn’t matter—I’m quite positive that it would be worth hearing.

Wilson-Zimmer

Steven Wilson & Hans Zimmer

A renowned soundtrack composer and Wilson scoring a larger-than-life soundtrack together. That would be epic, to say the least. Both Wilson and Zimmer are masters when it comes to creating lush, ambient, atmospheric sounds. This should happen. Right now.

Wilson-Walker

Steven Wilson & Scott Walker

Scott Walker is in his own world, a musician like no other with career lasting over 50 years. His take on avant-garde and pop is unique, and if it would come to the Wilson-Walker collaboration, the end result would be of epic proportions.

Wilson-Bush

Steven Wilson & Kate Bush

Similarly to Peter Gabriel above, Kate Bush is an artist whose work Steven really appreciate. Putting them together in a studio and letting them write music without any kind of limitations and pressures would produce such a creative relationship between two musicians.

Wilson-Vander

Steven Wilson & Christian Vander

Think of Steven Wilson composing Zeuhl music with the father of Zeuhl, Magma’s Christian Vander. Is it apprehensible? I thought so.

What do you think? Which of these collaboration should happen? What would you love to hear? Let us know in the comments below.
