Drums Between The Bells Reviews:
"It is, frankly, classic Eno." - BBC Music (UK)
"A fascinating, magnetic experiment in sound" - Los Angeles Times (US)
"Striking speaking voices … recite [Rick] Holland's lines, which express cosmic wonderment and artistic ambition. Then Mr. Eno stretched and tweaked those recordings to bring out quirks in the speakers’ enunciation and tone, and, pushing the songs further into a realm of artificiality, added a glitchy electronic soundtrack." - New York Times (US)
"Brian Eno's second album for Warp Records is a gem. Words by poet Rick Holland are set against lush soundscapes and subtle, hazy melodies. Superb." - **** Big Issue (UK)
“A tapestry of pillowy synths, minor-key melodies, chiming guitars and skittering drums.” – Wired (US)
About 77 Million Paintings and Illustrated Talk at Moogfest
Conceived by Eno as "visual music", 77 Million Paintings is a constantly evolving sound and image-scape born from his exploration of light as an artistic medium and his interest in the aesthetic possibilities of generative software. Eno will also present one of his highly informative ‘Illustrated Talks’ during the Moogfest 2011 weekend.
