Following on from the previous post, and Brian Eno’s musical longing for ‘Another Green World’,more extraterrestrial dreaming on my part.
It shouldn’t surprise that none of the objects are those of the title.
Nor is it the image of a planetarium.
It’s a skylight in Central Auckland’s Britomart Station, above me as I sat waiting on a bench for the next train home.
Late Friday afternoon, wearied, my mind wandering to a galaxy far, far away from work, but you don’t have to be freaking rocket scientist to work that out…
If you have only two minutes in your no doubt busy life, that is ample to squeeze in this 1975 miniature masterpiece by ambient music godfather Brian Eno.
It transports me to another place for sure, but since it has no words I will shut up and you can take a tiny trip of your own…
This is the perfect soundtrack to my other post from today “Water Into Stone”, from the ambient/electronic master Eno, whose music has been a lifelong companion for me. It sounds like what I see . Whoever came up with the artwork was obviously on the same wavelength (excuse the pun) as me, just more spectacularly!
