The Electronic Music Of William Eggleston

This short documentary is a profile of renowned photographer William Eggleston, who at 78 has released his first album of electronic music, Musik.

“I wouldn’t pretend to understand what really makes music,” notes Eggleston. “It’s so fluid and formless, physically, that we just can’t grab part of it. When one starts to try to do that, one’s trying to speak about something that is not finite.”

Musik is available via Bandcamp. You can also preview it below:
