#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.  A talented cast visits our studio to bring 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 play some of the realizations of "Apollo."
