Across the Margin: The Podcast
Episode 73: In Flowers Through Space with E Scott Lindner
In this episode of Across The Margin : The podcast, host Michael Shields sits down with New York City-based composer, producer, and audio engineer E Scott Lindner to discuss his forthcoming album In Flowers Through Space, as novel a piece of art you will ever come upon. In Flowers Through Space is an experimental concept album based around the mathematical Fibonacci sequence, a spiraling numerical concept often found in nature and associated with beauty and harmony. Recorded at Lindner’s Pinch Recording studio, the number of classical and jazz musicians on each song increases to mirror the Fibonacci sequence — beginning with 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21. The result is a diverse collection of tracks that blend classically-inspired musical forms with contemporary jazz performance, creating an evolving and cinematic listening experience that calls to mind the work similar innovators such as Kamasi Washington or Johnny Greenwood. In this episode listeners will come to know E Scott Lindner’s influences and musical background before being led into the heart of In Flowers Through Space through an in-depth deconstruction of how this fascinating piece of art was brought to life. In Flowers Through Space will be released on February 28th via Ropeadope record’s Infinity Gritty imprint.
