Boomkat Product Review:
Dedalus Ensemble performs Brian Eno's Discreet Music, Music for Airports, and Thursday Afternoon.
"With Discreet Music (1975), Music for Airports (1978) and Thursday Afternoon (1985), Brian Eno invented a new music genre, Ambient Music, which he defined as "able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting."
These versions performed and arranged by Dedalus Ensemble, according to the musicians and the critics who listened to it, goes beyond what we expect from it. A mental base that takes us far away. One of the only music without beginning or end in which we want to stay as long as possible.
Inspired by Erik Satie's furniture music, Cage's indeterminacy and La Monte Young's drones, Eno's series of compositions were based on strict formal protocols bringing the listener into an enthralling world of sounds."
