Format: Limited Edition 2 x 180g Vinyl LP
Cat No: ENO2LP9
Brian Eno's pioneering ambient album from 1978.
Brian Eno’s ‘Music For Films’ is a definitive example of a “soundtrack for an imaginary film”. The first of three volumes, it features a number of short tracks recorded 1975 - 1978, and includes styles and equipment that also carried over into Eno’s work on David Bowie’s ‘Low’. It has been ouT of print on vinyl since 1982
First issued in 1978, ‘Music For Films’ was first promo’d a few years earlier in an edition of 500 as a collection of potential pieces for filmmakers. This reissue of the official release features 18 gorgeous shorter form pieces (especially when compared with his tendency for durational works) that were intended to lend subtle emotive colour to films. They feature a combination of Eno’s patented synth work with more conventional instrumental contributions from Robert Fripp, John Cale and Fred Frith, among others, and would appear in films ranging from John Woo’s ‘A Better Tomorrow’, to Derek Jarman’s ‘Jubilee’, and Jim McBride’s ‘Breathless’
Filling the gap between Eno’s ‘Discreet Music’ and ‘Another Green World’, and his later classic, ‘Ambient 1 (Music For Airports)’, this album is clearly blessed with Eno’s rarified, breezy feel for melody and space, making concise, pointed use of textural fusions and contrasts in a way that resonates with, as much as stands out from, his other work during that era.
Half speed mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios, London, presented in a gatefold sleeve on 2 heavy weight albums which are played at 45rpm for a superior listening experience.
Contains an obi strip and an Abbey Road certificate plus a download voucher.
