Late last year Tom Rogerson released Finding Shore with Brian Eno, his acclaimed debut effort on Dead Oceans.
The album was created whilst experimenting with the Piano Bar, an obscure piece of Moog gear that works by using infrared beams focussed on each piano key which are broken as the keys are played, transforming the piano’s note into a MIDI signal that can then be used to trigger or generate new, digital sound.
Today we’re happy to share Rogerson and Eno in conversation, discussing the influences behind the project and how they set about creating this unique and beautiful record. Live footage was recorded in Berlin, and the film was directed by Cherise Payne, with the interview taking place at Eno’s studio in London.
Rogerson has been touring Finding Shore since February, further dates as follows:
30 March – Kings Place, London
5 April – Brussels, BRDCST Festival
6 April – Bruges, More Music Festival
8 April – The Hague, Rewire Festival
