Ambient God Brian Eno to Release Jaw-Dropping 9 LP ‘Music For Installations’ Vinyl Box Set

Brian Eno

Pioneering ambient producer Brian Eno will release Music For Installations, a collection of new, rare and previously unreleased tracks, on vinyl for the first time. The music heard on the release was recorded by the master for use in his audio-visual installations from 1986 to the present held at the Venice Biennale, the Marble Palace in St. Petersburg, Ritan Park in Beijing, the Sydney Opera House, the Astana Expo in Kazakhstan, and more.

Eno designed the packaging with long-time collaborator Nick Robertson. The 9-LP bound set comes with a 64-page booklet featuring rare and unseen exhibition photographs and a new essay written by Eno.

Says Eno of his work: “If you think of music as a moving, changing form, and painting as a still form, what I’m trying to do is make very still music and paintings that move. I’m trying to find in both of those forms, the space in between the traditional concept of music and the traditional concept of painting.”

In unrelated news, a 12″ featuring a new song from Kevin Shields and Brian Eno called “The Weight Of History” will be released on Record Store Day 2018.
