Brian Eno returns to the ambient sphere with the brand new album, Reflection. Devised as a single 54-minute piece, the work continues what Eno originally began with Discreet Music back in 1975. A form of music also referred to by Eno as "generative music" and "thinking music," Reflection is released on the beginning of a new year - a much-needed catharsis to the annus horribilis of 2016.
"Reflection is so called because I find it makes me think back," Eno says. "It makes me think things over. It seems to create a psychological space that encourages internal conversation. And external ones actually - people seem to enjoy it as the background to their conversations. When I make a piece like this most of my time is spent listening to it for long periods - sometimes several whole days - observing what it does to different situations, seeing how it makes me feel. I make my observations and then tweak the rules."
