BRIAN ENO: REFLECTION
The bells! The bells! They softly chime in irregular time, as if struck by random felt mallets, deep underwater and floating in space simultaneously. The sonic ripples and whistles they weave through air, body and mind hypnotise with a quality best described as, well, Eno-esque. Reflection is a fifty-three-minute piece described by the composer as "generative" music - sounds not so much played as set in motion under a series of cyclical, overlapping rules - designed to create "provocative spaces for thinking". Fans of Discreet Music and Lux will know the vibe but the feeling, magically, is something new yet again.
