On Saturday 17th November 2012, to celebrate the release of new album LUX, Brian Eno and Warp hosted a public audio-visual project, “Day Of Light”, encompassing four broadcasts of the album. You can now watch the result.

Eno explains..

"Day of Light' was conceived to mark the release of my new album LUX. We asked people to send in photos with the theme 'Play of Light' - which was one of the titles I considered for the album - to be streamed throughout the day, accompanying the broadcast of the album. The idea was to make a collaborative, generative work...to see what happened if you just made a space for it to happen in."

The timing of the four plays were selected to capture different lighting - from sunrise, day, sunset and night. Submissions were encouraged under a theme 'play of light' and were curated by Eno and his team in real time. This film archives just 4 minutes of Eno's favourites from over 6,000 submissions - watch it below.

DAY OF LIGHT was created by Studio Remote & Thomas Traum in collaboration with Warp Records and Brian Eno.

Brian Eno and Warp Records would like to thank everyone who participated and helped make the project such a big success. The chosen photographers are credited in the description on YouTube.
