The Waiting Room at downtown’s iconic Union Station was transformed into an immersive sensory sound experience this past March when Metro Art Presents partners with dublab for the series “Music For Train Stations”.
The program is inspired by Brian Eno’s 1978 ambient masterpiece, “Music for Airports,” which was designed with the intent of defusing the tense, anxious atmosphere of an airport terminal with loops of subtle sound including piano, voice and other instruments. Our program is both an homage to Eno and a contemporary interpretation of his concept applied within the frenetic energy and architectural splendor of Union Station.
This recording features special performances from Electric Sound Bath and a DJ set by Richard Chartier.
