Biennale Musica 2023

Read "Biennale Musica 2023" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Biennale Musica 2023 Venezia, varie sedi 16--29.10.2023 Anno dopo anno le scelte artistiche di Lucia Ronchetti non finiscono di sorprendere. Alla Biennale Musica 2023, in un articolato e disinibito panorama della contemporaneità, la direttrice ha inserito anche due eventi di grande richiamo, invitando due protagonisti ormai consacrati dalla storia e non appartenenti all'ambito della musica contemporanea come abitualmente inteso; entrambi trasversali e difficilmente imitabili, tanto da essere diventati icone assolute e mitiche: Brian Eno e John ...

Brian Eno: Foreverandevermore

Read "Foreverandevermore" reviewed by Scott Gudell

The shiny silver disc of Brian Eno's CD is encased in a simple outer shell of cardboard, accompanied by an equally unassuming booklet with over a half-dozen spherical images. In all probability, this modest packaging and those spheres, many supported by skeletal broadcast tower-like shafts, is a cryptic puzzle being used by Eno to help him contact someone, somewhere far, far beyond the faintest of stars. Curiously, any image of a human is absent. Regardless, power up your machine, insert ...

Extended Analysis


Read "Exposures" reviewed by John Kelman

Between the impact of the COVID pandemic since 2020, and in the eight year-long tenure of King Crimson's final lineup, which toured between 2014 and 2021, there's been a lot revealed about its sole remaining founding member, guitarist/keyboardist Robert Fripp. Since 2012, the more than five-decade history of King Crimson, live and in the studio, has been painstakingly and exhaustively documented in a series of large multimedia box sets and smaller, more price-friendly editions of key material, often ...

Tony Bennett and Janis Joplin 2: Tony and Janis 2 Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama

Read "Tony and Janis 2 Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

It was twenty years ago today (or more accurately, twenty years prior to the studio date for this recording) that the Ensenada, Baja California-based Loma Alta Life Extension foundation cloned Joplin Joplin, using the detritus obtained from one of the singer's hair brushes to bring a genetically identical replica to life. The Second Janis puts to rest the speculation that cloned humans might develop into deranged, obese, pitiable and sub-intelligent cancer-riddled shadows of their former selves, and at the two ...

A Year With Swollen Appendices: Brian Eno's Diary, 25th Anniversary Edition

Read "A Year With Swollen Appendices: Brian Eno's Diary, 25th Anniversary Edition" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

A Year with Swollen Appendices Brian Eno 480 Pages ISBN: 0571364616 Faber & Faber 2020 Published diaries are a strange affair. The relationship between the diarist and the diary itself is a private affair, considered to be almost sacred. People write their deepest, most heartfelt passions in their diaries, their thoughts, and desires, and they are safe in the knowledge that the diary will not be seen by others. This ...

U2: All That You Can't Leave Behind 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD)

Read "All That You Can't Leave Behind 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD)" reviewed by Doug Collette

The music of U2 on All That You Can't Leave Behind is very much in keeping with the austere black and white graphics, preserved throughout the graphic design of this digipak as well as its enclosed twenty-four page booklet within. A distinct move away from the density of production experimentation on their three previous studio albums—Achtung Baby (Island, 1991), Zooropa (Island, 1993) and Pop (Island, 1997)— the sound produced by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois on this 2000 project is ...

Roger and Brian Eno: Mixing Colours

Read "Mixing Colours" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

In a storied and kaleidoscopic career which has seen him change the course of music several times, it is fair to say that British musician, producer and visual artist, Brian Eno has never been one to park himself in the same spot for too long. It will come as little surprise then, that his latest effort, in collaboration with his younger brother, pianist and de-composer Roger Eno, titled Mixing Colours finds him inhabiting a seemingly known but vastly different space ...
