Brian Eno | Making Space

Brian Eno
Making Space
London, UK: Lumen London, 2010
Audio CD
Edition size unknown

A collection of nine previously unreleased tracks which was launched during Eno's June 2010 visit to Mexico City and subsequently only available from art galleries hosting his touring 77 Million Paintings exhibition. This copy is from the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, which presented the video installation in early 2011. 

Last week is was announced that Brian Eno will receive the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale. The award honours the 74 year old Eno's “research into the quality, beauty and diffusion of digital sound and for his conception of the acoustic space as a compositional instrument,” according to a press release. 

“Brian Eno’s compositions have been conceived in terms of a generative process that evolves in a potentially infinite time dimension, foreshadowing many of today’s compositional trends linked to digital sound.” 
- Lucia Ronchetti, Biennale announcement
