Audio Landscapes

Brian Eno, who rose to prominence as the boa-modeling, liberally rouged keyboardist for '70s glam band Roxy Music, has long experimented with dismantled pop structures and toyed with sound, credited by some as having invented "ambient" music. Eno is also a world-class producer, ranging from the Talking Heads to U2 and everything inbetween, tangential to, or within an orbiting earshot. On this New Sounds, we’ll hear Eno’s audio landscapes, as both a producer - featuring his sound sculpting skills on Paul Simon’s latest record, “Surprise,” Robert Fripp’s Exposure, and a release from a star-studded EP by Fovea Hex – and as a solo artist in his own right with his latest release, “Another Day On Earth.”
