Apologies if this is a duplicate, I couldn't find it using the amazing search function on watmm, and didn't feel like going back more than 10 pages in this forum. Out now on Deutsche Grammophon, which may explain why it was overlooked, but this has some beautiful pieces on it, and it's the first release by them as brothers.

Roger and Brian Eno explore the nature of sound in their first ever duo album, Mixing Colours. Their Deutsche Grammophon debut is a major milestone in their ongoing creative collaboration. The album’s eighteen soundscapes invite listeners to immerse themselves in the infinite space that lies below their surface. Brian Eno observes: “With classical instruments the clarinet represents a little island of sound, the viola another, and the grand piano yet another. Each instrument is a finite set of sonic possibilities, one island in the limitless ocean of all the possible sounds that you could make. What’s happened with electronics is that all the spaces in between those islands are being explored, yielding new sounds that have never previously existed. It has been a huge pleasure for me to explore that ocean with Roger’s unique compositions.”

 

Also available on virtually all streaming services.

There are videos (7 in total) directed by Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers (software guy/musician that helped Eno create Bloom), and of course the Japanese release has a bonus track.

I don't know if cute is how I'd describe it, but it's all good.

Been playing the “Expanded” version of this from Apple Music a bit. Kind of hard to figure out what the deal is… it seems like, there’s a new follow-on EP coming out on vinyl? But also those tracks have been appended to the album? But also the “Expanded” version is _only_ on streaming right now? But also it _will_ be released as a 2xCD in… October? wat

I just want the trax brain

      Romance was that unknown entity I posted on here back at the tail end of last year with that tape of fantastical FM pads, syrupy OPN vibes and Basinski decayed ambience that sold out in 1 hour on Boomkat.
      This is a full length collaboration that taps into Caretaker, Stars Of The Lid and GAS.

      Sup watmm? I decided to throw a new ambient/drone mix together as a succesor to the one I made a while back. This one was a lot of fun to put together as I really had to focus on textures and such to make the layered transitions seamless without sounding awkward. I think it turned out really well, so have a listen and enjoy.

      Vinyl and CD reissue coming in June this year on Mille Plateaux. Has remained a staple part of my listening habits since I first picked up the re-release back in 2004.

      Haven't seen it on the their Bandcamp: https://forceincmilleplateaux.bandcamp.com/ but it's up for pre-order in the usual places.

      Album entirely recorded using archaic recording devices. 
      Any thoughts?

      I would like to share with you, beautiful people, my very first album release: "ReconoɔǝЯ".
       
      The following is an attempt at creating a “palindromic” record, meaning that it can be listened to from both sides: “(..) an attempt to materialize the backs and forths of life (…) It is music without a starting corner, but it takes the idea of a corner and turns it into a circle. The idea of the beginning being repeated at the end and the end at the beginning…”.
       
      Entirely recorded using archaic recording devices, such as Sony TC250, Fostex X18, Walkmans, among them.
       
      Hope you guys enjoy it. Love you all ♥
