- A part of the program is devoted to the ambient star's unheard collection and airs today.
Brian Eno will upload never-before-heard material from his 50-plus-year career for his new channel on Sonos Radio.
Called The Lighthouse, it acts as a platform for the musician to premiere old and new projects. There are three programs, the first of which sees Eno discuss unreleased tracks and explain why he's finally sharing them. That segment, called Program 1, airs today on the paid Sonos Radio HD service and is also available via Mixcloud.
The Lighthouse already has 300 tracks uploaded so far. "The earliest track we have at the moment is from 1990," Eno said in a press statement. "New pieces will be entering the mix and some of that will go back even further. You will be listening to a sequence of tracks which will be randomly generated, chosen by chance so there is the possibility of odd, I hope exciting collisions—things that are very slow next to things that are very fast next to things that have no tempo, no pulse at all.”
The news comes a few months after Eno launched a climate change project for the music industry called EarthPercent. Last year, the ambient pioneer also released several albums including Mixing Colours with his brother Roger Eno and Film Music 1976-2020. The Eno brothers are due to perform live together for the very first time this August.
