Music for Films – Wikipedia

1978 studio apartment album by Brian Eno
Music for Films is the one-seventh solo studio album by british musician Brian Eno, released in 1978 and following his ambient album Ambient 1: Music for Airports. It is a conceptual oeuvre intended as a soundtrack for fanciful films, although many of the pieces had already appeared in actual films .

message [edit ]

The album is a unleash compilation of material from the time period 1975 to 1978, composed of short tracks ranging from one-and-a-half minutes to merely over four, making it the antithesis of the farseeing, sprawl, ambient pieces he late became known for. The compositional styles and equipment used besides carried over onto Eno ‘s work on some of David Bowie ‘s 1977 album Low.

Unlike Eno ‘s late ambient works, Music for Films utilises a broader sonic palette, with Eno ‘s synthesizers and “ found sounds ” being supplemented by standard studio instrumentation played by other musicians ( see Credits ) .

release [edit ]

in the first place released as a limited-edition ( five hundred copies ) LP in 1976 which was sent to a survival of filmmakers for possible inclusion in their work, [ 8 ] the commercial Music for Films dismissal was expanded to include a number of pieces for, as Eno put it, “ possible use as soundtracks to ‘imaginary ‘ films ”. In fact, excerpts from the album did appear in at least six films and one television serial :
Three far Film albums were released : Music for Films Volume 2 in 1983 ( in the first place only available as a share of the ten-LP box set Working Backwards: 1983-1973 ), Music for Films III in 1988 ( which consisted of study by diverse artists ), and More Music for Films in 2005, which combined tracks from the box set LP along with tracks from the original 1976 limited version publish .

different versions [edit ]

The album has manifested in respective forms, featuring different track-listings and track-times.

  • 1 : Promotional LP, 1976 (the Director’s Edition), issued in a limited number of 500 copies. There are two versions:
    • A test pressing with 25 tracks (where the titles are not given).
    • Official release with 27 tracks. Many of those tracks were taken from Another Green World or appeared later on the official 1978 issue. Essentially all of the ‘unreleased’ tracks are available on the Music for Fans, Vol. 1 bootleg and – rather more officially – on the Eno Instrumental Box Set.
  • 2 : Original 1978 release. The LP packaging featured a matte finish on the outside with a glossy finish on the inside, opposite of standard LP covers at the time.
  • 3 : Editions EG reissue. The tracks were rearranged into what Eno felt was a more satisfactory sequence. This is now the “standard” issue. (Note : the cassette version of the Editions EG reissue used the track order from the original 1978 version, though the packaging listed the tracks in the rearranged order.)

“ deep Waters ” appears in More Music for Films as “ Dark Waters ”. “ colored Waters ” is unpublished elsewhere .
