Brian Eno to Send Brighton Festival to the Ether in 2010
“Eno will be curating a fascinating collection of events across the city including 77 Million Paintings, Apollo, an exclusively commissioned sound installation and speaking on several occasions. His influence will also be felt right across the Festival programme as his key interests and ideas, ranging from social creativity to climate change and the environment, to a focus on generative art are taken up by our team of programmers. These topics will weave a thread through the genres of theatre, dance, books and debate, music and outdoor events, linking together projects by some of the outstanding companies and artists coming to this year’s Festival.”
Unsurprisingly, what sounds the most promising to me (in a sea of promise, of course), is this bit:
“The contemporary ensemble Icebreaker will perform a music arrangement of the 1983 album Apollo (Atmospheres & Soundtracks) by Eno live to the film of the original NASA footage of the Apollo moon landing.”
I want to be in England, May, 2010.
