I'd be curious to know if anyone is aware of a
relative Eno rarity called "Textures" which I've somehow
managed to get hold of and if they have any background info.

It's a music library CD intended for film use and consists
of 21 tracks produced (I imagine) circa 1980's as Daniel
Lanois features on 4 tracks.

The titles and running times are as follows:
1. Soft Dawn (2.19)
2. The Water Garden (2.53)
3. Shaded Water (3.16)
4. Suspicions (4.14)
5. Ozone (1.42)
6. Landscape with Haze (4.060
7. Mirage (3.20)
8. River Mist (4.33)
9. Constant Dreams (3.57)
10. Dark Dreams (3.07)
11. Black Planet (2.52)
12. Night Thoughts (3.37)
13. Travellers (3.52)
14. Evil Thoughts (2.01)
15. Darkness (1.24)
16. Jungles (2.00)
17. Sanctuaries (1.37)
18. Menace (1.46)
19. Suspended Motion (3.43)
20. The Wild (4.22)
21. River Journey (11.14)

The code is ESL 003 CD.

A friend and I drove down to NYC from Mystic to see THE opening night of the Bang On A Can production of Music For Airports at Lincoln Center sometime last spring ( I forget the date). It was mesmerizing, experiencing this music/thing/entity being produced by live players. In this form it can never be the same thing twice, obviously. One of the members of the group described it almost as if the live players, or that aspect of it, somehow improved the experience of the piece, which is something I think I take issue with. The original "composition" by Eno, that is the recording he created, is arguably the highest form of the piece, as the recording, like Discreet Music, is the creation, the painting or better yet, the sculpture, the artist created most directly. Of course this is purely subjective, I know, but it presents a curious seed for musing about the "essence" of a particular piece of music/art. Perhaps once a thing exists, it is free to take any form it wishes, and each form needs to be appreciated for itself rather than compared to it's alternatives, each alternative being just a finite point within a field of possibilities, convertible, interchangable, unpredictable (apply the Uncertainty Principle and E=mc2 here). Each form a piece takes is valid and viable. Musings, musings, musings,musi...,mus....,mu.....,m........,mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
What do you think Brian?

I enjoy reading the news, stories, tangents etc here but since May there is nothing new?
I question whether "Eno World" has become another ghost website? This would be a shame.
All I see here is dated material which is never updated. Where's the beef?

Brian Eno appeared briefly on British television on Friday night (1st May 1998) in the Channel 4 comedy Father Ted. Eno played a priest called Father Brian Eno to whom Father Ted was introduced at the 'It's Great To Be A Priest 98' Conference.

For those wanting to know more about the Father Ted series and presumably Eno's taste in comedy, you may want to visit the excellent unofficial web site http://www.geocities.com/Paris/2694/craggy.html. - but that would be an ecumenical matter.

Eno recently became a moment. "I had become bored with the usual pace of living- the travelling always forward, monotonously. I wanted to be more vague, to sit in the air, to remain still. So I turned into a moment." But this means no new Eno recordings, because unfortunately the moment is long gone.

Latest news on the next Bowie single (co-written by Eno) from the official Bowie site, which you can pre-order now at online stores like http://www.cduniverse.com/


DAVID BOWIE'S standout "Earthling" track, the
Bowie/Brian Eno-penned "I'm Afraid Of
Americans"--which merges distressed funk and
fractured electronic noises with a sly lyrical
observation on modern America by Bowie--has
been given the special re-mix treatment by Nine
Inch Nails and will be released October 14 by
Virgin Records as a six-track EP. This release
comes in the midst of Bowie's critically acclaimed
in-progress North American tour of clubs,
ballrooms and theaters. Selling out across the
country, the dates kicked off September 6 in
Vancouver and will conclude October 18 in

Five of the remixes are by Nine Inch Nails. Trent
Reznor lends background vocals on one of the
remixes while another Nine Inch Nails remix
features a guest rap by Ice Cube. The sixth remix
was overseen by England's Rupert Parkes, also
known as Photek.

One of the remixes will be serviced to radio
October 1 and a video will emerge in mid-October.
It's expected to be shot in America in early October
and will feature a guest appearance by Reznor.

Bowie and Nine Inch Nails' continuing collaboration
on "I'm Afraid Of Americans" follows their tour
together of North America in 1995. In every city
along the tour route, the two artists performed
together during a four-song set--which featured
Bowie's "Scary Monsters" and "Hallo Spaceboy"
and Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt" and "Reptile"--which
bridged each of their own performances.

Says Bowie: "'I'm Afraid Of Americans' has
developed into a key song in the "Earthling"
tour--it's become popular with our audience. And
Nine Inch Nails' input has created a fantastic single."

Reznor says: "I've been a fan of Bowie's work for
years and also he's a friend. When David asked me
to do some remixes, I decided to use a collective
approach. Keith Hillebrandt, Dave Ogilvle and
Charlie Clouser all came and did their own
dissecting, mixes and programming. We all worked
collectively under the cooperative moniker Nine
Inch Nails. I wanted to throw some odd things in
the mix and I have been planning to work with Ice
Cube on some Nine Inch Nails material, so I asked
him if he wanted to be involved. I am also a big fan
of Photek's and I thought his mix for the same
record would balance the EP out."

As is his usual practice, Bowie, along with visual-art
collaborator Davide De Angelis, has designed the
package for this highly anticipated CD. It
incorporates a charcoal drawing made specifically
for "I'm Afraid Of Americans."

The material which used to be "The True and Complete History" of the Oblique Strategies" has now been considerably updated, corrected, and added to.

It now lives and breathes as "The Oblique Strategies Web Site," and is located at the URL listed above.

You can contemplate the nonexistence of the Japanese deck, draw cards from the French deck, stare in envy at the 1996 Fourth Edition, and so many other Eno-friendly activities.

With every good wish,

I saw a War Child benefit concert on Saturday 5 July 1997, organised by Laurie Anderson but featuring many other artists.
The concert program credits stage set design, and much of the music, to Brian Eno. This includes some of the music that Laurie Anderson was playing. Eno was also credited with the music for a song that Lou Reed played in his short set: 'Rescue Night'.
Other artists performing: Philip Glass, Michael Nyman, Ryuchi Sakamoto, Salman Rushdie.

Ambient 5 (?)- Music for White Cube

I finally received what I must describe as the best ambient Eno record in a loooong time - Music for White Cube.

It is a limited (500) cd from a sound installation in
London, and the nine tracks originate from Eno recording
street and park sounds in and around London. The sounds
have then been treated, slowed down - whatever, and the
result is reminiscent of ON LAND - maybe even darker and
more dense.
There's a lot of beauty in these pieces, and I'm sure it's
a CD that I will play for all eternity.

Interesting music. Two of the tracks are on the "Glitters Is Gold" compilation, although not throughGyroscope. All Saints has entered a distribution deal with Thirsty Ear Recordings in NY.
"Glitters..." came in today as well... The Street Date is July 8th, I believe. The promo piece looks incredible, if I do say so myself...

A little teaser from an interview with Hans Roedelius that will appear in our zine at the end of this month:

"Brian Eno approached us. He know of us via Can, Neu and Kraftwerk. We invited him, after he had joined us on stage during a Harmonia show in Hamburg in 1974. He visited us in Germany in 1976, stayed with us in our commune, and tried to impart his rich experience with pop music to us with some ideas and ended up having one track on a 4 track tape. We continued the dialogue we had begun in Hamburg 2 years earlier, the musical results will be available soon."

In addition to this, he also spoke of Harmonia '76 coming out soon which Eno is also featured on (Harmonia is essentially Cluster with Michael Rother of Neu!).

I had met up with David Toop about a week ago here in New York- David is a great writer (Ocean of Sound) and musician. I also knew that he has been good friends with Brian for a while. I happened to ask about Brian and what he was up to. He said that he'd seen him a week or so ago. He told me that Brian was going to live in St. Petersberg for about six monthes. I asked him why he thought he was going there. "He just likes a change of atmosphere," he said.

On Friday, January 17, The Learning Channel (TLC) aired parts 9 and 10 of its "History of Rock 'n' Roll." I was pleasantly surprised to see that in the "Punk" episode, Brian Eno was one of the many musicians/artists interviewed! I was very happy because I had never seen him interviewed before. He was also featured in the "Up From the Underground" episode. Did anyone else catch it? Maybe TLC will re-run the whole series. If it does, make sure you catch the last two! You can also buy each episode for $20.00. (If anyone has that 1-800 number, please send it to me because I was in too much shock to write it down!!!)

According to the "Telling Lies" David Bowie site (http://www.etete.com/Bowie), the follow-up to "1.Outside" will be called "Contamination". Dave the Rave says it will be just him and Eno, no other musicians. Due to start recording in the summer. Presumably shortly after David finishes opening all his 50th Birthday Party presents.

ENOPhiles might find it an interesting idea to change the Windows 'TIP
OF THE DAY' into the texts found on Brian Eno's 'Obligue Strategies'.
I think these texts may be copyrighted (?), but still I found a few
copies of them on the internet.

Starting your PC with one of the Obligue Strategies leads to
interesting insights in your computer. What about:
- into the impossible
- overtly resist change
- would anybody want it?
- get your neck massaged.

I would even propose to add this Obligue Strategy especially for
- resist all shortcuts ;-]

Here's how to do it:

Do this at your own risk! I am not responsible!)

1. Open the Registry Editor (Regedit.exe)
2. Open the class
3. In the right part of the screen you see the windows tips. You can
change these tips by double-clicking the number
4. You need more space for all the Obligue Strategies (I found 134!)
If you right-click the screen you can add new values (not Keys).
5. Close the registry editor.

There is one drawback: the strategies will be shown in the order you
type them in, not at random. This is not how they are meant.
If anybody knows how to show the Win95 tips at random, please let me

Great Britain - It appears that there could be a new future for the former US Air Force Base at Woodbridge, Suffolk. This is the place that used to broadcast the music that first inspired Brian when he was a mere slip of a lad. According to The Independent (19th October 1996), the plan is to convert it into a prison to help cut down the UK's prison overcrowding problem. Apparently "the base was at the centre of one of Britain's biggest UFO incidents in 1980 when a metallic, triangular craft was seen over the nearby Rendlesham forest." Was this the Alien Craft that took Eno's hair? Or the UFO Eno and his sister once thought they saw? The truth is without hair.

USA - Exciting news for people who'll buy anything with Eno's initials on it. Calvin Klein is shortly to launch a new fragrance called CK BE.

As you probably know, Brian Eno is very much involved in the charity War Child; he was one of the driving forces behind the initiation of War Child and became a patron together with David Bowie, Luciano Pavarotti, Brent Hansen, Juliet Stevenson and Tom Stoppard.

On the 1st of September we launched the War Child web site at http://www.warchild.org

War Child is an aid organisation focussing on the plight of children in warzones. Now running several different kinds of projects, from music therapy programmes in Mostar and diabetic aid in and around Bosnia, to landmine programmes in Afghanistan, Angola, Bosnia and Cambodia. At this moment War Child is building the Pavarotti Music Centre in Mostar (Bosnia) where music therapy will be used to help children with war traumas. (See the picture of Brian Eno in Mostar practising music therapy together with War Child's Professor Nigel Osborne). War Child now has offices in Holland, the U.S., Italy and England.

In the web-site, people can learn about the different War Child aid-projects, as well as some of the activities undertaken by artists to support the charity. Here are also pictures and info about the Eno initiatives "Little Pieces from Big Stars" and the "Pagan Fun Wear" event, as well as the HELP cd.

More news on Eno's album cancellation, this time from the CompuServe conference. Brian said:

"What's happened is I've become nauseated by the stacks of CD's accumulating in the dusty corners of my studio.

I always wanted to be part of a conversation that people were paying attention to, and my feeling is that music has slightly died, stifled by oversaturation.

So for me it's a little dull to make records at the moment... though I might change that thought."

The interviewer asked what he was listening to at the moment, and he said vinyl, because you get less music on it. "I hate the way CD's just drone on for bloody hours and you stop caring".

This from a man who once said CDs were "A new medium for a new kind of music" (strapline for the Thursday Afternoon press advertisement) and praised the flexibility of CDs (in an interview about Nerve Net) because you could program your CD player to play whatever tracks you wanted, which meant he as an artist didn't have to censor so much...

These comments are just random words that dropped into the mind of the poster, and should not be interpreted as reflecting those of the editorial board of WWE.

Date: Mon, 27 May 1996 13:36:02 -0500 (CDT)
From: Andrew Suber
Subject: Brian Eno on Sesame Street

Hi ETers,
On May 12th I was watching one of my favorite programs, "Sesame
Street". "Sesame Street" has had a reputation for being a show with cool
guests. John Cage, Cab Calloway, Lily Tomlin, George Carlin, and Lou Reed
have all been on.
Well, on May 12th Mr. Brian Eno was on. I was very surprised. He played
a small Moog organ with Elmo. Their song was a song of learning, a song
of polite manners. I believe it was about being courteous to one's
parents. I thought Elmo and Eno harmonizing was a very endearing sight. I
felt so much respect for Eno. First U2, then James, now Elmo; he is
popping up everywhere.

On Monday I picked up a copy of Eno's
new book, "A Year With Swollen
Appendices". It's based on Eno's diary
for 1995 and is an excellent
read. He talks about his work on the
Passengers, Spinner and Outside
(David Bowie) records, his
installations, and his foreign travel.

The book is quirky from the start,
being a rather peculiar (sub A5)
shape­perhaps the shape of Eno's
actual diary. The "swollen appendices"
are a set of essays, letters, and

Lots of fun and highly recommended.

information about Eno and Costello working together:

they collaborated on a track for the X Files album,
Per the Warner web site (www.wbr.com), it's
called "My Dark Life". The album (I think called
"Songs In The Key Of X", not positive) was recently released round the end of March.

Today (May 15th) is Brian Eno's birthday.
Addicted To Noise had a small feature on Brian today
at http://www.addict.com/Music_News_Of_The_World/96-05-15.html#Eno

Gregory Taylor's radio show on a community station the Chicago area should be featuring an Eno
birthday special, which I think is a yerly event. I think it's Sunday evening, not sure what
station or time.

ANNOUNCE : New Release - Brian Eno's Generative Music 1 (with SSEYO(R) Koan(R) Software)

Brian Eno's GENERATIVE MUSIC 1 with SSEYO Koan software, a SSEYO Koan music title

"Some very basic forms of generative music have existed for a long time, but
as marginal curiosities. Wind chimes are an example, but the only
compositional control you have over the music they produce is in the original
choice of notes that the chimes will sound. Recently, however, out of the
union of synthesisers and computers, some much finer tools have evolved.
Koan Software is probably the best of these systems, allowing a composer to
control not one but one hundred and fifty musical and sonic parameters within
which the computer then improvises (as wind imrovises the wind chimes).

The works I have made with this system symbolise to me the beginning of a new
era of music. Until 100 years ago, every musical event was unique: music was
ephemeral and unrepeatable and even classical scoring couldn't guarantee
precise duplication. Then came the gramophone record, which captured
particular performances and made it possible to hear them identically over and
over again.

But now there are three alternatives: live music, recorded music and
generative music. Generative music enjoys some of the benefits of both its
ancestors. Like live music, it is free of time-and-place limitations - you can
hear it when and where you want.

I really think it is possible that our grandchildren will look at us in wonder
and say: "you mean you used to listen to exactly the same thing over and over

Brian Eno 1996

"Each of the twelve pieces on Generative Music 1 has a distinctive character.
There are, of course, the ambient works ranging from the dark, almost mournful
Densities III (complete with distant bells), to translucent Lysis (Tungsten).
These are contrasted with pieces in dramatically different styles, such as
Komarek with its hard edged, angular melodies, reminiscent of Schoenberg's
early serial experiments, and Klee 42 whose simple polyphony is similar to
that of the early Renaissance. But of course, the great beauty of Generative
Music is that those pieces wil never sound quite that way again."

CSJ Bofop, March 1996

Hi...I was wondering if anyone out there knew of a CD that was recently
produced by Brian Eno? The only information I have on this recording is
that it was for an album that Eno produced in Paris recently for a man
from North Africa. His name is Mohammed S.......(that's the
problem...don't know Anything but the initial). Is there anyone
outthere who has information on this CD?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Brain One's latest album, "Generative Music 1" is now being advertised
on the Web (http://www.sseyo.com/genmus1.html/). It's not a static
CD-full of recorded pieces, but a floppy-disk program which recreates
the music each time you play it (on a PC with AWE32), AND MAKES IT

It's also different in that it costs about £40 (GBP40 for those of you
with a non-UK character set), which is three times the cost of a "plain
vanilla" recording.
