AN AMBIENT MEDITATION WITH BRIAN ENO PARTS 1-3 In a special three-part series, we take you into the London
studio of Brian Eno, the godfather of ambient music and Grammy-
winning producer of U2, David Bowie and many others. Eno reveals
new sound designs, previews new music and discusses the art of
sound, including a spontaneous Kaos Pad solo. One of our most
accurate music prognosticators, Eno talks about a world where
music might be less important, but where musical possibilities
Tuesday 10/21/03 BRIAN
ENO PART ONE: NEW DIRECTIONS LOST & FOUND As much music as you've heard from Brian Eno in the last thirty
odd years, there are literally shelves more works-in-progress
in his London studio. He's beginning to release some of it on
his Curiosities series (Opal Music), but there are scores more.
We take you into Eno's studio where the composer talks about
new directions lost and found, plays some current projects and
gives an impromptu Kaos Pad solo.
BRIAN ENO PART TWO: AMBIENCE OF THE LONG NOW Brian Eno usually operates on more than a single musical plane
at once. At the same time he might be producing U2, he could
also be sculpting an ambient sound installation. In the second
part of our Brian Eno series, the composer and his brother Roger
Eno, talk about the music of mid-20th century composer Hans Friedrich
Micheelson and creating an ambient composition for bells that
might exist in the far, far distant future.
BRIAN ENO PART THREE: ABBA & HEAVY METAL/THE VELVET GLOVE
& THE CLENCHED FIST In the process of playing some new, proto-punk-techno music
& poetry works, Brian Eno ruminates on the place of music
in the world today, the enduring popularity of Abba, and Heavy
Metal as immersive music. "I think heavy metal players haven't
really understood what they're doing, because what they're really
doing is making a bath that you can immerse yourself in. But they
insist that they've got something to say which, of course, is
a big mistake." For Heavy Metalists perhaps, but not Brian
One of our most prescient prognosticators, Eno talks about a world
where music might be less important, but where musical possibilities
Friday 10/24/03 MIKE OLDFIELD: TUBULAR BELLS
RETURN It was 30 years ago that Mike Oldfield released his epic work,
Tubular Bells. A single composition taking up two sides of an
LP. With virtually all the instruments played by Oldfield, it
was a stunning work of the imagination. And Oldfield was only
20 when it was released. Now Oldfield has gone back and re-recorded
the entire work, almost note-for note, on Tubular Bells 2003 (Rhino
Records). In Mike Oldfield's studio, we go back to the creation
of the original Tubular Bells and hear its rebirth on the 30th
