Native Memphian William Eggleston, 77, is widely regarded to be the most important photographer of the late 20th Century, but there is another side to him that took root in his Sumner, Mississippi childhood, where he discovered the piano in the parlor that ignited in him a lifelong passion for music.
There’s a William Eggleston photograph that I think of every time I travel; as memorable and satisfying as the hook of a pop song, it’s been embedded in my subconscious since the moment I first saw it. Eggleston, a Memphis-born photographer known for his color-saturated work, took the photo, called Untitled (Glass in Airplane), sometime between 1965 and 1974. Eggleston recorded it in the 1980s on a Korg OW/1 FD Pro, stored the files on floppy discs, and is only releasing them now, with the label Secretly Canadian.

Eggleston’s photographs have travelled way beyond the photography and art world, influencing the style of film-makers such as Sofia Coppola and Gus Van Sant, and appearing on album sleeves by Big Star in 1974, and more recently on Primal Scream’s Give Out But Don’t Give Up (1994) and the 2006 EP Joanna Newsom & the Ys Street Band.

Eventually they went back to the house, where Eggleston agreed to pose for a portrait, but abruptly changed his mind after Soth had set up a chair outside on the porch. In fact, she locked me out.

In 1983 William Eggleston, a pioneer of colour photography in the fine art context, went to take pictures of Graceland. Elvis’s rooms are crammed with synthetic colours and materials, but Eggleston lends his images a trademark intimacy, picturing the kitschy interiors eerily close-up and rendering them eerily quiet. Everything looks constructed, fake, but fake like how Eggleston’s photographs - quotidian images of Southern life - often look fake. Enter Musik, a collection of recordings from the 80s that serves as Eggleston’s first official album. It’s neither typically Southern nor rocknroll, yet both influences percolate. Eleven of the thirteen tracks are untitled solo improvisations, distinguished by inventory numbers like ‘DCC 0. ’.
William Eggleston’s photographs have adorned album covers for years: He has lent his singular eye to projects by Big Star, Joanna Newsom and Spoon. He recorded improvisations onto floppy disks and used a four-track sequencer to overlay parts and create fuller symphonic compositions. In addition to his own music, the album includes standards by Gilbert and Sullivan and Lerner and Loewe
