BRIAN ENO: MUSIC FOR INSTALLATIONS
Worthy addition to polymath's ambient oeuvre.
Since 1975's Discreet Music up to last year's Reflection, Brian Eno has been making "generative", beatific soundscapes to ease the stress of modern living. This six-disc box, a selection of Eno's less-well-known ambient work from '86 to'17, served to provide a similar immersive, aural balm for art gallery visitors. Here, the sprawling Kazakhstan, from 2017, is a case in point: a shimmering cluster of sound, designed to wash over you like a gently undulating river. Dive in unreservedly.
