This time on 14tracks:

“14 tracks: The inner lounge”

Spread between vast libraries of music for film and TV, we hone in on the spirit of the inner lounge! Embodied by the likes of Can's Irmin Schmidt, the Radiophonic Workshop's John Baker, or Steven Brown of Tuxedomoon, these pastoral experiments fuse mellow jazz kitsch with early electronics, musique concréte and otherworldly psychedelics that subconsciously soundtracked our earliest televisual and cinematic experiences with a kind of irreversible synaethesia. Would 'Life On Earth' evoke such vivid memories without Edward Williams' magical soundtrack? Would the future still sound the same without Tristram Cary and Raymond Scott's kooky laboratory scores? How would To Rococo Rot or Daedelus sound without the work of The Metropole Orchestra or Pierre Bastien? As you ponder these questions, crack open a fresh packet of custard creams and make a pot for the journey as we turn your living room into a déjà entendu dreamspace, in slippers...
