"A meeting of minds that is full of rewarding surprises, challenging and surprising one another, and their listeners, with music that feels alive and wondrous…” - Pitchfork (US)
Tom Rogerson is an improvising pianist and keyboardist, and founder of experimental electronic- rock band Three Trapped Tigers. His debut solo album ‘Finding Shore’ - a collaboration with Brian Eno - was released in December 2017 by Dead Oceans.
Their process began with a familiar problem: what's the point of recording improvisation? How can the interrelation of live and electronic music create a sound that is evocative and seemingly ‘natural’, while using modern techniques of digital synthesis and processing?
For Eno, the solution was to record Tom playing one-take improvisations over fifteen days, capturing both the audio of the piano and the MIDI of his performance through a device called the Moog Piano Bar, in order to produce the music without disrupting the immediacy and spontaneity of the improvisation.
This unintentionally led to a simple dynamic: Tom improvised the notes and Eno improvised the sounds while the two were interacting and reacting, Tom hearing Eno’s sounds in the room and responding to them, Eno receiving Tom’s notes, reshaping them in a fluid, reciprocal loop.
