A real soundtrack for a film by John Carpenter (such as, for example The Fog, written in 1980), Kazakhstan, the first track on this vast five-hour box set, sets the tone. Enormous blankets of sound, serpentine melodies, dustings of notes scattered across parallel dimensions, with in(de)finite contours. Music For Installations is the first collection of all of the music that Brian Eno (who turns 70 in 2018) composed for different art exhibitions from 1986 to the present day. When the Briton visited the Venice Biennale, the Russian Museum in St Petersburg or the Sydney Opera House, he decided to accompany each of these exhibitions with a new, tailor-made musical composition, and he brings magisterial skill to a genre of which he has been the uncontested champion since 1978’s visionary Ambient 1: Music for Airports: the atmospheric wanderings, the sensory, spartan touches, the minimalist and languorous structures dominate the field. By bringing together music and painting, Brian Eno has fun creating contrasts, and subverting common points of reference: “If you think of music", he says, "as a moving, changing form, and painting as a still form, what I’m trying to do is make very still music and paintings that move, “I’m trying to find in both of those forms, the space in between the traditional concept of music and the traditional concept of painting." There can be no doubt that this new collection of ambient sounds, always exhilarating, often utterly hypnotic, is one of the most exciting displays of Brian Eno's genius. This is not to be missed. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz
