Brian Eno Makes 2nd Apollo Moon Landing

ApolloBrian Eno Relaunches Apollo, Live.

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.
