Brian Eno Music For Installations'
Music For Installations (Box Set) (Pre-Order)Release Date: May 4, 2018*
9x Vinyl Box Set
First Time On Vinyl
The legendary Brian Eno is set to release a collection of new, rare and previously unreleased tracks, Music For Installations, through UMG.
The new collection will be available as a 9-LP edition vinyl box set. This is the first time any of the 'Music For Installations' tracks will be available on vinyl.
Musician, producer, visual artist, thinker and activist Brian Eno first came to international prominence in the early 70s as a founding member of Roxy Music, and immediately followed that with a series of critically-praised and influential solo albums. His visionary production work includes albums with David Bowie, Talking Heads, Devo, Laurie Anderson and Coldplay, while his long list of collaborations includes recordings with John Cale, David Byrne, Grace Jones and James Blake.
Less widely discussed, though equally notable and arguably even more prolific, are his visual experiments with light and video. These are the fertile ground from which so much of his other work has grown; they cover an even longer span of time than his recordings and have in recent decades paralleled his musical output.
These highly-acclaimed works have been exhibited all over the globe - from the Venice Biennale and the Marble Palace in St Petersburg to Beijing's Ritan Park and the sails of the Sydney Opera House.
Brian Eno said of the collection: "If you think of music as a moving, changing form, and painting as a still form, what I'm trying to do is make very still music and paintings that move. I'm trying to find in both of those forms, the space in between the traditional concept of music and the traditional concept of painting."
Music For Installations is a collection of new, rare and previously unreleased tracks, all of which will be available on vinyl for the first time. All of the material was recorded by Eno for use in his installations covering the period from 1986 until the present (and beyond). Over this time he has emerged as the leading exponent of generative music worldwide and is recognized as one of the foremost audio-visual installation artists of his time.

For the third installment in RVNG Intl.'s archival series, the tape is wound back to 1970s
Seattle, home place of ambient music savant K. Leimer. A Period of Review (Original
Recordings: 1975-1983) unearths unreleased portions of Leimer's vast archives and
highlights the work of a self-taught visionary whose use of generative compositions ferried
his music to infinite resonance.
Kerry Leimer was born in Winnipeg, Canada. He was raised in Chicago before his family
permanently settled in Seattle in 1967. Kerry's teenage interests and artistic experiments
blossomed from the seductively strange tendrils of Dadaism and Surrealism. In the early 70s,
Leimer found musical parallels to these visual movements by studying import copies of NME
and Melody Maker and inquiring with local record store clerks about the exotic descriptions
he read of Can, Neu! and Faust-innovators who were bringing the wild dictates of 60s art-discourse into music
The tape-manipulated serenity Leimer experienced with Cluster's II was a key revelation.
Leimer realized the potential to compose with minimal training and scoured pawnshops
for cheap instruments and recording equipment to transpose his wayward musical instincts.
Leimer's sound palette and composition soon refined and heightened with the accessibility of
dynamic equipment such as the Micromoog and TEAC multi-track tape machines.
Synchronously, the Terry Riley indebted loop-based compositions of Robert Fripp and
Brian Eno's No Pussyfooting inspired Leimer to form recursive musical passages of bare
timbre and melody that would become hallmarks of his sound. "The loop provided an
instant structure-a sort of fatalism," recollects Leimer in A Period of Review's liner notes. "The
participation of the tape machine in shaping and extending the music was a key to setting
self-deterministic systems in motion and held a clear relationship to my interests in fine art."
The underground music scene of Seattle/Olympia in late 70s was small but seeded.
The vestiges of prog rock pompously pummeled the few clubs and record shops before
punk and New Wave became the rage. Leimer sought to support a growing community of
experimental composers by launching the Palace of Lights record label in 1979 with his wife
Dorothy Cross (this was years prior to the birth of regional titans K Records and Sub Pop).
Leimer rarely performed live, averting the litmus of instant appreciation for his solitary
studio pursuits. Tellingly, the "K." that abbreviated Leimer's first name was a nod to Kafka's
doomed pariah Josef K (from The Trial and The Castle). This gives a sense of the reclusive
and literary realm Leimer was fond of working in. Despite his reticence, Leimer's debut 1980
album Closed System Potentials would reach a receptive audience, and eventually sell more
than 3,000 copies thanks in part to Cross's persistent advocation to independent distributors
A Period of Review focuses on unheard material outside of the work Leimer offered on
Palace of Lights, though even that music could be considered relatively "unheard." The thirty
tracks of A Period of Review may have remained a mystery on moldy reels until now, but
Leimer's entire catalog of generative music remains pristine in its absolute power.
Liner notes were crafted by Seattle writer David Segal. Top-tier mastering was done by
Greg Davis, who produced the compilation with Palace of Lights artist Robert Carlberg, RVNG
and Kerry Leimer himself, who continues making music to this day.LP 1
