Brian Eno Speaks.
A CD compilation
released as a celebration of Brian Eno's contribution to ambient music.
release of a CD accompanied by a book, all within one box. The CD gathers
pieces from "Music For Film III", "Spinner", "The Drop" and some rarities,
besides Eno himself commenting on some questions referring to his music
in a recording of six minutes. The book, of the same size as a CD and
96 pages, contains essays on Brian Eno (In Italian and also English),
as well as photographs. This is a very well designed release that will
please Brian Eno's followers and that can also be ideal for those who
are not very familiar with Eno's career and wish to contact his music
and his artistic ideas."
comprises four chapters: 1. Sound Ambience: Erik Satie, John Cage, Brian
Eno; 2. A  Conversation With Eno; 3. Driving; and 4. Ambient Music.
In addition, there is a five-page chronology of Eno's work in the music
industry (including a discography) and two pages of "Eno On-Line"
URLs that link to information on Eno. The text is informative,
substantive reading; several small black-and-white photos of Eno are thrown
in for good measure.
The three diverse Glitterbug tracks on the Sonora disc are precious, as
they're difficult to obtain in any format. While some of Sonora's ambience
borders on environmental music, Eno detours and ventures into original
hybridized forms on "Stravinsky" (classical synth), "Spinning
Away" (mood-evoking vocal pop), and "Saint Tom" (atmospheric
new age). The upbeat "Swanky" (from The Drop) and the percussive
"Radiothesia III" (from Glitterbug) are ambient highlights.
The final track, "Brian Eno Speaks", is a six-minute interview
segment in which Eno expresses views similar to those presented on the
Imaginary Landscapes video recording.
He speaks of creating musical landscapes while attempting to remove himself
and his personality from those landscapes. He also expresses his renewed
interest in acoustic instruments, and makes several analogies between
music and painting, as he often does in interviews and in his own writing.
A reasonably priced Italian import, Sonora Portraits is geared toward
Eno devotees: those same fans who invested in (and were enlightened by)
More Dark Than Shark (Faber & Faber, 1986), Imaginary Landscapes (Mystic
Fire, 1989), and A Year With Swollen Appendices (Faber & Faber, 1996)."
