Beautiful string quartet by Stephen Whittington…the title a nod to Brian Eno’s Music for Airports. Comparisons made to Harold Budd’s recent string quartets (Bandits of Stature).
Music For Airport Furniture by Stephen Whittington is a work for string quartet that alludes to Brian Eno’s ambient Music for Airports and his acknowledged predecesor Erik Satie’s Furniture Music. The work was created specifically for the event Psychedelic Rays of Sound.
