There Then, Hear Now - 30th September 2016

Playing tracks by

Big Star and Mississippi Fred Mcdowell.

New series with Mark Aitken about the relationship between photography and sound. We know that photographs are fictions and not being able to see them compounds this fact. Just try and explain a photograph to somebody. Instead, this series investigates sounds inspired by photographs. Hearing is another way of seeing... This week: William Eggleston once said that he was 'at war with the obvious'. A lot of his work over the past six decades has involved photographing the obvious in ways that often confound and intrigue. Working mainly around Memphis and the Mississippi delta, Eggleston's work is especially inspirational for sound and music. With contributions from National Portrait Gallery curators where Eggleston's work is currently on display.

Brilliant. Really interesting about William Eggleston and great music. Big Star's version of Here She Comes made me feel very weird. Thanks!
