Studio Music

My tunes for Rose Blake's 'Studio Music' - click here to listen   

Larry Norman – Riding In The Saddle
Inside the world of the Christian music scene Larry Norman is a cult figure. He was a key member of 'the Jesus People' or 'Jesus Freaks'. I love the sound of his falsetto voice.
Broadcast And The Focus Group – intro/magnetic tales
 I like the inspired collage of esoteric radiophonic séance sounds.
Orff/keetman – 09.riddles
I grew up listening to my Mother's music and movement records, this reminds me of them. Cerebral, disciplined and well-crafted percussion pieces, I imagine polished parquet floors of Victorian inner city schools. The children's voices evoke magical sprites, inhabitants of forests or the guardians of paths and stone bridges.
Faust – Stretch Over All Times
I tend to stitch and crop books and pamphlets to this.
Luboš Fišer – Brother And Sister
An eerie incidental piece of music from the Czech New Wave film 'Valerie and her Week of Wonders'; a very beautiful and magical soundtrack, I listen to this a lot.
Abba – The Day Before You Came
I can't get enough of this repressed, emotional and melodramatic track. My favorite Abba song.
Kathleen Ferrier – He Was Despised
The atmosphere of Ferrier's music helps me work into the early hours of the morning.
Camille Saint-Saëns – The Carnival of the Animals: Introduction & Royal March of the Lion
The Carnival of the Animals is by far one of my favorite pieces of music, it inspires me, helps me to concentrate and crack on with making work, it's so inventive and visual .I especially like the idiosyncratic choice of aquariums and the witty use of xylophone to convey the sound of fossils within the Suite.
Arthur Lyman – Love Song Of Kalua
1950's Exotica music to calm me down.
Vivian Stanshall – Ginger Geezer
This gives me a brimful of confidence.

Modern Lovers – Old World
(Hidden Track)
