leicatests (20)I'm working on part 2 of my Gnosis series and I'm ill in bed. So I'm looking at poses and composition to decided how best to make my next move. When I'm in this state I'm inspired by the memory of Eno making Discreet Music. "Brian Eno's concept of ambient music builds upon a concept composer Erik Satie called "furniture music" This means music that is intended to blend into the ambient atmosphere of the room rather than be directly focused upon. The inspiration for this album began when Eno was left bed-ridden in a hospital by an automobile accident and was given an album of eighteenth-century harp music.After struggling to put the record on the turntable and returning to bed, he realised that the volume was turned down (toward the threshold of inaudibility) but he lacked the strength to get up from the bed again and turn it up. Eno said this experience taught him a new way to perceive music: "This presented what was for me a new way of hearing music as part of the ambience of the environment just as the colour of the light and the sound of the rain were parts of that ambience." So here I am looking at my colour tests with my latest muse Wofai deciding where to take these images. I hear the rain falling https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wG03l_fMI70
