And so ambient pioneer Brian Eno has released another ambient classic in the same vein as “Music for Airports” and “Discreet Music”. Here’s my thoughts on the album and I give my own simplified demonstration of generative music.
Welcome to another heady video filled with prog. This time around I thought I’d do a little Olympics-related review and look at “Apollo – Atmospheres and Soundtracks” – but also give you two reviews for the price of one. Huzzah!
Now it is time to turn my attention to this ambient collaboration from King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp and sax/flute wielding Theo Travis. Is this audio heaven or just a load of random bleeping and droning? There’s only one way to find out and that’s to watch the video!
I am a big fan of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra and its new incarnation helmed by Arthur Jeffes, son of the late Simon Jeffes who was the original proprietor of the PCO. Sundog is an off-shoot project from Arthur Jeffes and I had the good fortune to see them play last year. This short EP won’t be for everyone but it fuses new age with the avant garde and gives a strong nod to the works of Glass and Nyman.
