March 2020 sees Brian Eno releasing the first official album in collaboration with his younger brother Roger. The two have been in the studio together, way back in 1983 for the space odyssey Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks which was released by Brian as a solo effort. The brothers also collaborated on the soundtrack to David Lynch’s Dune in 1984, but this record Mixing Colours is the first to feature the two names on an equal footing, and is the first for the prestigious German label Deutsche Grammophon.

The album is made up of classical Schubert-style pieces composed by Roger Eno over the last 15 years on a MIDI keyboard. Brian then took these demos and put them through his ambient software, naming each one a different colour (nuanced as they are), such as the cosmic Blonde, the melancholic Rose Quartz or the morbid Obsidian. Although he is often described as a musical painter, could this Brian Eno’s most monochrome album? The British musician, who doesn’t have synesthesia, admits that while he does often compose with colours on his mind, he likes music for its “completely nonfigurative” nature, and enjoys this paradox: “I don’t think anyone listens to music in the hope of visualising a painting’s landscape. Yet many people find abstract painting inaccessible, despite music being a resolutely abstract art.” Something to think about when listening to this record while seeing the new Kandinsky exhibition. ©️ Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

New Order: From Darkness to Dance-floor

How does one Mancunian group move from perhaps the gloomiest band of the punk era to a master of the dance-floor? In the early eighties, straight out of Joy Division’s ashes, New Order marked one of the first successful unions of rock’n’roll and dance music. A perfect soundtrack for a morose, Thatcherite England.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.

Soulwax, renewable energy

A decade after their last album, the Dewaele brothers are back with a Soulwax album, produced in their new Deewee studio. Following the awesome soundtrack for the film Belgica, a new era is ushering in for the Belgian brothers who, after making the planet dance with their mixes and remixes as 2ManyDJ’s, are once again pushing the boundaries of creativity.
