#3287: The Apollo Project, Live

Email a Friend

Brian Eno's Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks (recorded in 1983), was the musical setting for a non-narrative collection of NASA stock footage from the Apollo program, and was something that Eno didn’t perform live.  As the grand opening of this year’s New York Guitar Festival, a talented cast brings to life a re-imagining of the nearly 30-year old Eno tribute to the Nasa moon landings. 

Four of the musicians from “The Apollo Project,” Mike Gordon (Phish), Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan's longtime guitarist), and itsnotyouitsme (Caleb Burhans & Grey McMurray)  join us on this New Sounds program to give us a taste of what we’ll hear at 8PM on Friday night, January 6, 2012, at the World Financial Center’s Wintergarden.  The event features scenes from the documentary feature “Man In The Right Seat,” chronicling Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, a work in progress by director Craig Teper. The ensemble also includes special guests David Torn, Noveller, and Tortoise’s Jeff Parker.
