Lab Overview

"Brian Eno’s ambient pieces, even with specific pointers attached (Music For Airports; Music For Films), always left tacit spaces, areas of blank canvas, which the listener filled with his or her own subliminal detail. It was, by design, a missing element which constituted an additional ingredient; and an impressed Al Reinert consequently commissioned the maverick sonic auteur to provide the soundtrack for his Apollo documentary, the result of which was the Apollo: Atmospheres And Soundtracks album. The project would find Brian Eno collaborating with his younger brother Roger and Canadian musician Daniel Lanois. With a Yamaha CS-80 synth as the softly thrumming propellant at its heart, the album’s careful deployment of instruments also finds room for a low-budget Suzuki Omnichord, pitch-shifted downwards to lend it an otherworldly gravitas. Guitars also feature throughout, stroked so sparingly and delicately that they only register like faint blips on a mission control console. Half a century after Neil Armstrong’s historic inaugural moonwalk, Apollo: Atmospheres And Soundtracks has been remastered at Abbey Road by mastering engineer Miles Showell and is reissued with a bonus disc of new material recorded by Brian Eno, Roger Eno and Daniel Lanois, reuniting the trio for the first time since the 1981-82 sessions."
