Description

While William Eggleston needs little introduction as a master of color photography, few are aware of his fi ne ability as a pianist. Musik (Vinyl), consisting of two vinyl LPs, is only the second, and most elaborate, publication of his musical recordings to date.

Performed in the 1980s on his Korg OW/1 FD Pro keyboard synthesizer and stored on fl oppy disks since, revealed here are pieces by Eggleston’s favorite composers across genres-from Beethoven and Chopin to Gilbert and Sullivan, from jazz to reggae-as well as improvisations of considerable brio. Accompanied by a booklet of photos showing Eggleston while playing, Musik (Vinyl) reveals hitherto unknown facets of his creativity, and is part of Steidl’s plan to publish Eggleston’s complete works: his books, music and a future release of his 1974 video Stranded in Canton.
