9780826427861: Brian Eno's Another Green World (33 1/3 series)

The serene, delicate songs on Another Green World sound practically meditative, but the album itself was an experiment fueled by adrenaline, panic, and pure faith. It was the first Brian Eno album to
be composed almost completely in the confines of a recording studio, over a scant few months in the summer of 1975. The album was a proof of concept for Eno's budding ideas of "the studio as musical
instrument," and a signpost for a bold new way of thinking about music.

In this book, Geeta Dayal unravels Another Green World's abundant mysteries, venturing into its dense thickets of sound. How was an album this cohesive and refined formed in such a seemingly ad hoc way? How were electronics and layers of synthetic treatments used to create an album so redolent of the natural world? How did a deck of cards figure into all of this? Here, through interviews and archival
research, she unearths the strange story of how Another Green World formed the link to Eno's future -- foreshadowing his metamorphosis from unlikely glam rocker to sonic painter and producer.

About the Author:

Geeta Dayal's writing on music, visual art, and science has appeared in many major publications, including Bookforum, The Wire, The New York Times, The International Herald-Tribune, and The Village Voice. She is currently at work on a second book on the history of electronic music. She lives in Boston.

Review:

"Dayal's unique and fresh take, which also delves into Discreet Music, is a must read for Eno fans and makes a great primer for the uninitiated."
-Flagpole Magazine

"Dayal's lucid, elegant deconstruction of Brian Eno's most beguiling album is also an inspiring, delightful inquiry into the nature of creativity and constraint. Anyone interested in art making needs to read this."
—Ed Park, author of Personal Days

"...the best short introduction to Eno's work and ethos going."The Wire, February 2010

Mention in Nottingham Evening Post, February 2010

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It was the strange and mystical Another Green World (1975) that was the cosmic bridge between Old Eno and New Eno, between Rock and Ambient, between the guitar and the synthesizer, between the old world and electronic music as we know it. Another Green World was a total paradigm shift, an introduction to a new way of thinking: for Eno, and for the world of popular music. Geeta Dayal interviews Eno, and his many collaborators on the album. She digs into the album, excavates its odd past, and untangles how, exactly, it was a link to the future of electronic music - by foreshadowing how powerful, personal and emotional this music could be. Thirty-Three and a Third is a series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the past 40 years. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780826427861
