With his striking color photographs turning the ordinary into art, William Eggleston has worked for decades to become one of the foremost photographers of his generation. His works are included in museum collections around the world and at the age of 78, he surely has nothing to prove. However, with the bravery and confidence of a true artist, he has embarked upon a new trajectory: he has just released a recording of original compositions, entitled Musik, played on a synthesizer. Like his photos, the pieces on Musik are untitled and left to the listener to interpret their meaning and, like his photos, the reception to this new work is stellar. Born in Tennessee and playing the piano since age four, Eggleston is no newcomer to the world of music, and you can hear his reverence for the great masters like Bach and Handel in his compositions.
