Roger Eno - Flood (cd)
Flood was constructed by Roger Eno for the 2008 Salthouse Art Festival in North Norfolk.
1. Flood (74.01)
'The music that you hear on this disc is an attempt to emulate a soundtrack, or musical backdrop, I constructed for the 2008 Salthouse Art Festival in North Norfolk. My intention was to have a piece of music that would play throughout the duration of the exhibition. I wanted it to be continually changing so as not to be tedious yet to be 'self-contained'. I decided to do this in the following way: Twenty 'events' (tracks of birdsong, bells, sparse melodies, vocal lines, bass notes etc.) were recorded on to four identical CDs. These tracks incidently included four 'events' of silences of varying lengths. The CDs were then placed in four machines that were set to 'random shuffle' and 'repeat all'. Thus an ever-changing random backdrop was set to 'self-compose'. I had made sure that the musical elements would not clash uncomfortably, having chosen the Lydian mode and sticking to it throughout.
