Brian Eno SHIPS Live

I recently returned from a short European tour with Brian Eno and the Baltic Sea Philharmonic, conducted by Kristjan Järvi. I played keyboards and triggered various electronic sounds live, and we were also joined by Leo Abrahams, Melanie Pappenheim and Peter Serafinowicz.

It was an extraordinary experience, taking in beautiful venues in Venice, Berlin, Paris, Utrecht and London. BSP are unique, the way the arrange and improvise is more like a band than an orchestra, and Kristjan is more a force of nature than a conductor. Hearing the arrangements – particularly for The Ship itself – transform through rehearsals and the live dates themselves was a wondrous thing to behold. I feel privileged to have shared a stage with them.
