Oscillations #35: Gavin Bryars


The Sinking of the Titanic is a work by British minimalist composer Gavin Bryars. Inspired by the story that the band on the Titanic continued to perform as the ship sank, it recreates how the music performed by the band would reverberate through the water some time after they ceased performing. Composed between 1969 and 1972, the work is now considered one of the classics of British experimental music.* This record was originally released on Brian Eno's Obscure label in 1975.
