CBQ’s “Variation on Brian Eno’s “Music For Airports”” is out now!
Like last month’s companion LP, “Variation on Brian Eno’s “Thursday Afternoon””, it stems from a chance conversation re “the 1st 3 CDs you bought”.
And, like its companion, this almost simultaneously recorded piece is based on replica loops of phrases used by Eno in his original work.
Piano & choir phrases used on “2/1” and “1/2” from his seminal ambient album “Music For Airports” from 1978, are set out in chance formations, along with a new CBQ guitarscape, created by the treatment and manipulation of three pieces from the “Disquietmusik” Frippertronics series.
The three elements are combined to form a new 80 minute variation of “Music For Airports”, available to stream for free or to download on a Name Your Price basis.
Bonuses for downloaders comprise the three separate 80 minute elements:-
“Smiling Reservoir Crucifixion (Guitarscape)”
“Music For Airports Choir Variation”
“Music For Airports Solo Piano”
