2020 album. Also available on CD.
Roger Eno and Brian Eno together and individually are among the foremost innovators in experimental ambient music and will release their first album on Deutsche Grammophon Records: ‘Mixing Colours’. Brian and Roger Eno have revolutionized many concepts of music production and performance, from pioneering treatments of pop music by Brian Eno to younger brother Roger Eno’s ambient synth/piano recordings reminiscent of Erik Satie. These qualities resonate on this new release.
Each brings his unerring sense of place and mood to the album. The timbre in each title deepens and opens up with each listening. Specific yet abstract titles guide listeners through the collection created over several years in a unique collaboration by both artists. The result is deep dive listening and landscapes of sound bearing titles like abstract art: "Obsidian", "Deep Saffron", or "Wintergreen".
Their debut DG release will reach a wide new audience still unfamiliar with their artistry. The poetic and ambient anthology reveals two celebrated ambient musicians at the height of their artistry. Roger says “There’s a huge commonality between what we’re interested in.” while Brian adds “These pieces are very Impressionistic and very much to do with sonic quality, sonic colour.”
