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.

Jean-Michel Jarre, 50 Years of Electronic Music

To celebrate his 50-year-long career, Jean-Michel Jarre has released the edifying compilation Planet Jarre, a collection of 41 tracks that highlight the path set by the pioneer of electronic music. It’s a wonderful opportunity to look back over the five decades during which the Frenchman expressed himself as an artist, a mad scientist, a visionary, a sucker for record breaking spectacles, an activist and now the torchbearer for artists struggling for fairer pay online.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats. With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic. Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence.
