Brian Eno – ‘Lux’


Brian Eno
Warp Records

Brian Eno, the leading man in the world of ambient music (and former synthesizer for Roxy Music) as well as one who has worked with the likes of David Bowie, Coldplay, and U2, has released a new album comprised of just four songs, each of which is over 18 minutes in length. Lux is a solely instrumental work resembling a limitless flowing of sound that could appropriately accompany an art installation or film piece. Abstractly similar to the formulation of a painting, Lux focuses on creating precise, radiant notes, floating in and out of the resounding atmosphere. While it may not conjure any distinct feelings, it certainly heightens the listener’s senses to the surrounding environment. —Mary Catherine Ballou
