Brian Eno: Oblique Music - interviews and features

posted 18 Aug 2016, 03:22 by Sean Albiez   [ updated 24 Nov 2016, 13:15 ]

Solent University short news feature with me chatting about Eno and electronic music.

An interview with myself and David Pattie on RHYSTRANTER.COM.

More information on the book available on the Bloomsbury site and Facebook.

“Meticulously written, rich in detail and factually argued ... Anyone who wants to know Eno from the beginning, to understand his experimental strategies in the studio or to study his eternal movement between pop music and free sound, will not be disappointed.” Groove (German electronic music magazine - Bloomsbury translation) 

Specialists in English, media, film and television have also been invited to take part in this conversation, which feels authentic to the spirit of Eno ... [T]he book mulls over those necessary questions that anyone thinking about Eno must eventually face.” The Wire

'This much needed book explores the many trajectories of Eno’s varied career, and it will engage and excite any music lover, regardless of your opinion of Eno’s work. It’s a richly rewarding collection that deftly explores and unpacks the work of one of popular music’s pioneering figures. While much has been written on Eno, and no doubt will continue to be written, Oblique Music does an outstanding job of critically capturing both the well-known and less familiar elements of Eno’s work. Beyond the specifics of this work, the book provides some thought-provoking material on broader issues such as collaboration, composition, creativity, experimentation, musicianship, technology and more, and as such will stimulate the interest of anyone engaged in music creation and production. This is a book that you will return to time and again—like Eno’s best work, its rewards make themselves most evident after repeated visits'. Dancecult: Journal of Electronic Dance Music Culture
