chords again and again and really loving it. It's the same as what I do now,

rock band Three Trapped Tigers, Rogerson ran into Eno at a gig. Bonding over a
love of the countryside of their Suffolk home, the pair entered the studio and
worked with The Piano Bar, a device that converted the sound of the piano into
midi signals, which were then further manipulated.
"It was this classic Eno, almost scientific thing," Rogerson says now.
"He always finds a system that can be a source of creativity." The result is
an album that uses Eno's magic to pull deep from Rogerson's subconscious to
evoke the strange flat landscape of Eastern England, all heathland, military
testing sites and estuary mud. "I do totally hear it, I'll listen and think
'oh that sounds like the bells at Woodbridge, that's the birds, the wind
rustling in the reeds'," Rogerson says. "I think it permeates my music,
and Brian's ambient records. That 'is it organic or is it electronic thing' is
