Eno, Roger

Roger Eno is known primarily as an "ambient" composer through his collaborations with brother Brian Eno and producers Michael Brook and Daniel Lanois, but his depth as a musician defies categorization. A multi-instrumentalist, Eno has composed many memorable scores for film and TV including "Dune", "Nine And A Half Weeks" and "Warm Summer Rain". His love of classical piano is evident in his many critically acclaimed solo works which feature his unique ambient chamber music style. His piano also figured prominently in the group Channel Light Vessel, an ambient super-group featuring Kate St. John, Bill Nelson and Laraaji. In addition to those projects, Roger Eno has worked with an illustrious assortment of musicians including Michael Brook, John Cale and Lol Hammond.

Roger Eno + Lol Hammond - Damage

Artist: Roger Eno + Lol Hammond
P: 1999
This might seem like an unlikely pairing: the composer Roger Eno (who, though he has always had one foot in the pop music world, is classically trained and composes primarily in that mode) and Drum Club cofounder, Lol Hammond, who is known mainly for his work in the sphere of electronic dance music. This is one of those projects that is either going to succeed wildly or fail utterly, and happily, it's a solid success. Eno brings a level of harmonic sophistication to the proceedings that is generally missing from the world of techno, not to mention a contemplative, almost pastoral sensibility that he shares with his more famous brother Brian (to whom we owe the word "ambient" as a musical term). Hammond, for his part, takes what could have been almost soporific keyboard parts and muscles them up with electronic rhythm that never sounds artifically imposed. Hence, the soothing and yet rhythmically interesting flow of "Something Orange," and the slow, swinging, trip-hop pianism of "Hip Hop Flipperty Flop," which sounds for all the world like Music for Airports remixed by Portishead. That's a compliment. You can't really call this music "challenging," but somehow it's still very rewarding. ~ Rick Anderson

Roger Eno - Between Tides

Artist: Roger Eno
P: 1992
The works on this album seem to fall into two slots: The minimalist and the orchestral. The minimalist work such as "Prelude for St. Joan" and 'Autumn" rely on fragile strings to advance what at first seems to be either fragmentary melodies or subliminal melodies. As the piece continues, these themes are fully developed and accompanied by subtle hints of counter-melodies and descants. Some people might not like his frequent use of the perfect chord, but it works well since Eno doesn't force the pieces to progress in the traditional manner. In Autumn, which adds a lovely base of a piano played with a tender, slip-note style... the effect is overwhelmingly sad but beautiful. Eno is always at his best when he strips down the instrumentation and eschews the more New-Agey glides he often relys upon.
The very first cut "Dust at Dawn" sounds as if it was lifted directly from some lost Sergio Leone film and Morricone soundtrack.. it's that lovely. Using a fairly traditional orchestration, this piece really does evoke a movie of the mind, as does "Ringingglow". The other pieces not mentioned swing back and forth between the minimalist strings and the more expansive approach of the above mentioned cuts. Overall, the CD is a nice balance of both styles but sometimes I make mix tapes where I cut out one or the other and add similar pieces from Enos other works to avoid ruinging the mood.
The string pieces alone should qualify Eno as a major talent of the Neo-Expressionist mode, but he moves between so many styles that there is never an entire CDs worth of such pieces to treasure. While this might be maddening in another, lesser talented composer, it is actually a plus with Eno since all his styles have merit. BETWEEN TIDES is a CD \you will want to have in you permanent collection

Roger Eno - Swimming

Artist: Roger Eno
P: 1996
Roger Eno's music is a continuance of the Romantic or Victorian Era's literature. Swimming is all but devoid of Eno's typical classical ensemble instrumentation, but the deep, romantic, NWEuro mood is present in droves. Swimming, as with all of Eno's output, is decisively mature emotionally, obviously British, humble, and peaceful. Eno is touching with Swimming, but with emotion 100% sugar-free.

Artist: TD, Ashra, Eno, Froese u.a.
P: 1993
What you get is a fairly decent ambient selection from Virgin's rich and varied back catalogue from the 70's, 80's and 90's. Some of it naturally sounds a little dated, but it is a history lesson so what do you expect.
