This first new mix of 2017 comprises 4 (excerpted) tracks from Brian Eno’s Reflection & 3 from Steve Roach’s Painting in the Dark (acquired 1.1.17 & 12.31.16 respectively), and creates a textural atmosphere by breaking the 2 compositions into fragments & then reassembling them into a brand new construct (including treatments, overdubs, echo-boost, overlapping & a trick…or 2).
Roughed out this past New Year’s Day & tweaked once or twice since then, it includes cameo appearances by Robert Fripp, Markus Reuter & Robert Henke.
Embedded in the Eno tracks are excerpts from a December 2016 interview with Brian & Jarvis Cocker, in which the subject matter was the release of Reflection & the construction of Ambient music – you’ll have to listen to uncover them all : ).
