Accidental shot of me before getting it right for a shot of the sun... 😂🤦🏻♂️😂 The jazz has done its job - the book is still drawing me in, so it’s time to listen to Brian Eno’s Drawn From Life (my favourite Eno album) -
Brian Eno: Apollo- Atmospheres and Soundtracks....with Daniel Lanois and Roger Eno. Last month, an expanded remastered version was released on vinyl and cd. It's a 2 cd set, the second consisting of many extra tracks that the aforementioned collaborating musicians made for this release. Not only does this instrumental masterpiece go beyond the norm, at times I can swear I hear angelic ambient voices gliding and jumping into the listener's spinal fluids within the album's many stellar sonic passages that brood, soar, traverse and spiritually stimulate. This album creates/maps out new territories of mood previously uncharted until now. I believe it was recorded at Grant Avenue recording studio in Hamilton Ontario Canada- an experimental semi residential audio lab (then owned by the brothers bob and Dan lanois) where Eno recorded many of his other fantastic groundbreaking ambient records. The new material more modern sounding of course, takes things a step further and its direction is a pleasing semi progressive continuation into said new aural territory. A collection of rhythmic journeys, some low key, some simple yet probing and cerebral. A mix of aquatic and aerial synth textures. A must-have for your collection. Early morning dawn listening and late night stereo speaker projections to illuminate the dark are best times to properly absorb this legendary record. Solid spatial remastering. #remaster#cerebralmusic#naturemeetsthecosmos#deepblueday#trainspottingsoundtrack#brianeno#daniellanois#rogereno#apollo#landmarkalbums#ambient#bliss#cinematicmusic#apolloatmospheresandsoundtracks#grantavenue#ambientmusic#soundtrackmusic#blissfulinstrumentals
Ambient musiqinin banisi Brayn İnonun 77 milyon audio-vizual tərtibatlı rəsmləri festival tamaşaçılarında nəhəng kaleydoskop təəssüratı yaradır.
Unudulmaz yeni xatirələr yaradacaq ikinci Nəsimi Festivalına sayılı günlər qalır.
77 million audio-visual images of Brian Eno, the founder of ambient music, make a huge kaleidoscopic impression on the audience.
There are just a few days left for the second Nasimi Festival to create unforgettable new memories.
Having taken a break for my mental health, I’m back and ready to discuss the albums whose anniversaries I missed so far this month.
Fear of Music is one of my favorite new wave records, and I contest that it’s severely underrated due to the success and popularity of what works were to come from Talking Heads. It rightfully ought to be discussed as one of the best albums of ‘79, if not the half-decade. The Stooges’ eponymous debut, in contrast, didn’t resonate with me for quite a while, but in the end the manic, dogged energy that permeates the album found its way into my playlists time and time again. Happy 40th and 50th from the 3rd and 5th to each respectively!
28 Days later - Original soundtrack (June 2003)
A CD spin today, one I’d love on vinyl but it’s always eluded me. This is in stark contrast to yesterday’s choice (Hot Chip) this is dark, building and extremely bleak, nothing bright or breezy about this epic slice of music. It’s 85% score by John Murphy who captures the vibe well, it’s electronic based rather than orchestral (there are strings though) with both ambient and intense passages, it’s broken up lovely with interludes of choir like singing and occasionally thumping guitars as you move through the scenes of the film. There is a couple sings from other acts too, Grandaddy, Blue States and electronic god himself Brian ENO (‘An Ending’ which is a piece from his earlier this year reissued album, and it’s ABSOLUTELY stunning) does a track too.
Also, I love the film too, the music and it are perfectly matched and I hope they reissue it on vinyl one day soon. Come on XL recordings?!
Worth it for ‘In the House, in a heartbeat’ alone.
WALL STREET is tonight! Until then please enjoy this very calming image of #DavidByrne and #BrianEno, who provide the majority of the films soundtrack, having tea together.
Film starts at 8:00 following a brief pre-show at 7:45.
Creating and finalizing music can be never ending, it can always seem a little short off perfection. Sometimes you may have unfinished works filling up your desktop. "Finishing" takes courage, and it kinda reminds me of graduation. I have personally benefited from Parkinson's law both in a practical and musical way; which I thought may be worth sharing.
There is not much correlation between musical quality, and the time taken for its completion. Jazz is a prime example of how improvisation done well can even match precisely controlled music. The value of music is not necessarily perfection, sometimes it is in vulnerability that emanates inspiration.
