Stephen Whittington – Music For Airport Furniture

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.

Performers: Zephyr String Quartet – Belinda Gehlert & Emily Tulloch (violins) Lilian-Terri Dahlenburg (viola) & Hilary Kleinig (cello).

Psychedelic Rays of Sound was a new music event held on the 25th of September 2011 in the Radford Auditorium, Art Gallery of South Australia. The event took it’s name from the work of British artist Damien Hirst and featured 6 new sound works commissioned in response to the the exhibition Saatchi Gallery in Adelaide – British Art Now. The event featured composers Stephen Whittington, Luke Harrald, Christian Haines, Sebastian Tomczak, Jamie Seyfang and Alexander Thumm, and the Zephyr String Quartet.
