Brian Eno The Ship Limited Edition Clear Vinyl
Originally conceived from experiments with three dimensional
recording techniques and formed in two interconnected parts, ‘The
Ship’ brings together beautiful songs, minimalist ambience, physical
electronics omniscient narratives and technical innovation into a
single, cinematic suite.
Brian Eno describes the music on the record in his own words: “On a
musical level, I wanted to make a record of songs that didn’t rely on
the normal underpinnings of rhythmic structure and chord
progressions but which allowed voices to exist in their own space and
time, like events in a landscape. I wanted to place sonic events in a
free, open space. One of the starting points was my fascination with the First World
War, that extraordinary trans-cultural madness that arose out of a
clash of hubris between empires. It followed immediately after the
sinking of the Titanic, which to me is its analogue. The Titanic was
the Unsinkable Ship, the apex of human technical power, set to be
Man’s greatest triumph over nature.”
Available exclusively to independent retailers on transparent
double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with printed inners and four prints. Vinyl format include digital download card.
