Biography

Ambient 1: Music for Airports is the sixth studio album by English musician Brian Eno, released in 1978 by Polydor Records.The album consists of four compositions created by layering tape loops of differing lengths, and was designed to be continuously looped as a sound installation, with the intent of defusing the tense, anxious atmosphere of an airport terminal. Glitterbeat is extremely proud to reissue Laraaji and Brian Eno’s seminal album “Ambient 3: Day of Radiance.” The album has been re-mastered and includes a lengthy interview with Laraaji.

Celebrated English musician and producer Brian Eno was born in Suffolk, May 15, 1948. He reached his first tangible success as a member of the art-rock outfit Roxy Music playing there from 1971 to 1973. Initially, he was placed behind the mixer desk equalizing the instruments of the other participants. However, he gradually began experimenting with the sound processing it with his synthesizer and other electronic devices. This soon made Eno a full member of the band, who was no longer hiding behind the backs of the others, but was playing and singing with them. When the promo tour for the group’s second album, For Your Pleasure (1973), was over, Brian exited Roxy Music and embarked on a solo career. His opening efforts were based on pop music strongly impacted by electronica.

After releasing the debut record, Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) in 1974, Eno was forced to suspend his activities due to the long and difficult recovery after a car accident he had suffered in 1975. This could be the reason why the musician changed his musical preferences drastically after this event. This resulted in the 1975 record, Another Green World, bearing the first features of the emerging ambient style. The same year, Eno released an instrumental long player under the title Discreet Music, the first of the ten parts of the immense ambient artwork, fully and completely issued by the musician’s own label Obscure. In 1977, Eno made an attempt to come back to pop music with Before and After Science, but his main focus remained on experimentation. For instance, Music for Films (1978) became a certain type of soundtrack to a nonexistent motion picture. A year later, Brian delivered a peculiar album called Music for Airports. Its music had the purpose to free passengers from the fear of aircraft flights. At the same time, Eno maintained fruitful cooperation with several performers as a producer and musician. The most outstanding partnership of all was working with David Bowie and Talking Heads. As he entered the eighties, Brian Eno produced some of the famed U2 studio works. Still, this never posed him a problem to commit himself to his own music career.

In 1983, Eno recorded the Apollo Atmospheres and Soundtracks CD, based on the space inspired themes. In 1991, the album My Squelchy Life was already recorded and even released, but called off a little bit later. It was replaced by Nerve Net. In a short while, Eno released The Shutov Assembly. He kept working in several directions at a time and again formed top class tandem with David Bowie as he produced the singer’s album Outside (1995). Approximately at that moment, Brian explored deeply the concept of self-generating music. It implied creation and combination of separate music fragments and other sounds with their consequent reproduction in random order. In the new millennium, Brian Eno’s musical and producing activities did not cease in any possible manner. In 2001, he received Grammy for the excellent producing work on the U2 outstanding All That You Can't Leave Behind. One more year later, Brian again proved the endlessness of his creativity by releasing the experimental studio work Bell Studies for the Clock of the Long Now. 2005 saw him make Another Day On Earth, the first record in fifteen years featuring his vocals. It remains a great mystery what Brian Eno will bring to his listeners next time.

Ambient 2: The Plateaux of Mirror is a 1980 album by Harold Budd and Brian Eno. This is the second installment of Eno's Ambient series, which began in 1978 with Ambient 1: Music for Airports, identifiable by its similar cover art which evokes rural terrain on a map.

Background and production[edit]

Eno produced Budd's 1978 album The Pavilion of Dreams after British composer Gavin Bryars introduced the pair, which led to their collaboration on this album.[citation needed]

Eno said of Budd that he indulged in 'live improvisation on The Plateaux of Mirror .. Download suara sirine tanda kebakaran. I would set up a sound, he would improvise to it, and occasionally I would add something: but it was mainly him performing in a sound-world I had created'.

Speaking about how Budd discovered new ways of playing on the album simply by bouncing ideas off each other, Eno has also commented

.. with him I used to set up quite complicated treatments and then he would go out and play the piano. And you would hear him discovering, as he played, how to manipulate this treatment. How to make it ring and resonate. Which notes work particularly well on it. Which register of the piano. What speed to play at, of course, because some treatments just cloud out if they have too much information in them.

Content[edit]

The bulk of the instrumentation is Budd on acoustic piano with treatments by Eno. 'The Plateaux of Mirror' and 'Wind in Lonely Fences' are performed on electric piano. Budd composed 'Not Yet Remembered' in California, with a melodic line intended for vocals, and mailed the composition to Eno in New York City. Eno then reversed the melodic phrase, recorded it and played it to Budd for the first time over the telephone. The basic theme of 'The Chill Air' was repeated on 'Their Memories', a piece on Budd and Eno's 1984 release The Pearl. While the theme is recognisable by its melody line, the treatments are more pronounced.

Tracks 2, 4, 7, 8 and 10 are mostly piano-oriented, with little in the way of heavy electronic tinkering by Eno; track 1, also piano-based, has some light synthesizer treatments towards the latter half. Tracks 3 and 9 feature syncopation, mostly in the form of light chimes, while track 6 has wordless vocal-style effects accompanying the piano. Track 5's piano is backed with some warm synthesizers, the most uptempo composition on the album.

Because the album was recorded on analogue equipment, the listener can hear the hiss of the tapes Eno used for his treated sounds in several of the tracks.

Spin Alternative Record Guide6/10[5]

In its retrospective review, AllMusic described it as 'a lovely, evocative work'.[1]Pitchfork wrote 'The Plateaux matches Eno's other ambient albums in its moments of deep beauty, though it does little to mute the human presence. One gets the feeling that Harold Budd was after something slightly different from Eno, as his playing seems a bit busy under the concept at hand. Still, left on in the background, Plateaux is a light-filled album that accomplishes the goal of transforming its environment.'[4]
