Brian Eno has been extremely busy lately. When he’s not producing U2, Coldplay or some other pop phenom, he’s been staging multi-day festivals in Sydney and now he’s relaunching Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks. Apollo is an ionic Eno release, full of atmosphere, never-ending melodies and shimmering lap steel guitar. Originally performed as a studio concoction by Eno, his brother Roger and Daniel Lanois, it will be staged for the first time ever as a live performance in London at the Science Museum on July 20 and 21. This won’t be the album played live, but a reimagining of the work by Korean composer Jun Lee and performed by Icebreaker with pedal steel guitarist BJ Cole.
A nice interview with Eno talking about it appears in The New Scientist magazine.
