Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks

In 1983, Roger was invited by his brother Brian, along with Daniel Lanois to Canada to record a soundtrack for an epic film produced using original footage from the Apollo missions: Al Reinert's 'For All Mankind'.  Pieces from the album have also been used in many other films such as 'Drive', 'Traffic', 'Trainspotting' and '28 Days Later'. The cover was produced by artist and friend Russell Mills.

Voices 

Roger's first solo album from 1985. A collection of meditative piano pieces some with treatments added by Brian, and all produced by Daniel Lanois. These are slow, contemplative works, many parallels with the work of Satie, a great influence on Roger's work.

Between Tides

A delicate, bittersweet pairing of Eno's deceptively simple melodies with chamber music, snatches of spaghetti western sneak in to finish 'Dust at Dawn' and 'Autumn'. It is a warm and romantic album further carving out new frontiers and establishing a style all of his very own. Very English and nostalgic, this, from 1998, will not be the last time Roger explores this territory.

In a Room 

Comprising of cello, piano and clarinet, the ensemble move from classical toward something more contemporary, employing rhythms, melodies and textures which are rich and really engaging. Contemplative, the album is gentle but without lacking emotion or power.

The Familiar 

Produced by Bill Nelson in 1993, The Familiar combined the voice and woodwind of Kate St John with the piano compositions of Roger Eno. Elegant and engaging, The Familiar, co-written by Kate St John, mixes gut-wrenching beauty with quiet humour.These pieces are classical first and foremost and a move away from the 'Ambient' tag.

Automatic

From a collaboration between Kate St John, Roger, Laraaji and Bill Nelson came a super group named 'Channel Light Vessel'. Automatic was released in 2006. 'That rare, spare beauty and evocative lyricism. This is one of those little treasures that repays repeated listenings with added joys...' Alternative Press

 Lost in Translation

Released in 1999, this solo album ties together mediaeval chant with melody and rich, diverse tracks which converge and create a well-unified package.

 The Night Garden

An edgier sound, this album was released in 2000. It takes us into edgier electronic worlds, previously inhabited by Roger but not for sometime.

 Swimming

Folky and serene, Swimming was a departure from his ambient or classical, pastoral paths in 1996. Deliciously rich piano and whispered vocals make this diverse album a must-have, it conjures up the golden summers we cannot really remember ever happening these days! With Swimming, Roger really shows his diversity as a composer and ability to express emotion, calmly and beautifully.

Excellent Spirits

Back with the supergroup 'Channel Light Vessel' this album from 1996. 'The happy blend of this odd quartet fairly scintillates, especially when Kate St. John and Roger Eno provide the musical impetus, with the others embellishing and embroidering the musical spaces around them. Quite, quite lovely.' Q Magazine

The Music of Neglected English Composers

'A deadpan joke of the fashion so beloved by a certain subset of classical music aficionados, [this] 1996 album creates eight composers from the 17th century to the 1990s out of whole cloth and then ascribes several brief compositions to each of them. The period specifics of each composer gives Eno, a classically trained pianist and arranger, plenty of room to make sly musical jokes and poke light fun at different eras such as Jack Hill's "Hours of Darkness," a four-part fugue that's a knowing tweak of hyper-serious early 20th century modernism, or Burwell Ruckland and his adoration of his idol, Erik Satie....the album can also be enjoyed as a collection of various bits of lyrical light classical music.' AllMusic

The Flatlands

Referencing chamber-music, this sophisticated album from 2003 is comprised of an incredibly powerful selection of tracks, bound by subtlety and a common cinematic quality. The sounds are big, yet sparse and truly conjure up the landscape in which Roger works.

 Damage

'Damage is primordial urban music. Its deceptively simple, often subtle structure exposes the constant inborn struggle for homeostasis as nature battles with nurture. Eno and Hammond could be creating soundscapes for the resistant protagonists of filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski's masterfully wrenching early-'90s French trilogy Blue, White, and Red. In off-kilter looping ambient time the compositions rush like blood to blushing cheeks, like mini-cars through the tunnels of Paris, like verbal arrows to one's heart--each leaving a faintly hued streamer behind, pale evidence of movement and transformation.  --Paige La Grone

 The Appointed Hour

Recorded in collaboration with Peter Hammill in 1999, the two never met. Both musicians sat down each day and improvised for an hour without reference of the other's work. 'That the two players' contributions merge seamlessly says much for their compatability and their generally understated approach. The music isn't without tension, but grand climaxes have been shunned in favour of piquant bitonal effects where contributions overlap. The gentle, pastel result...is all the more appealing for that.' The Wire

The Long Walk

Recorded over a six-month period in his Suffolk studio in 2005, Roger Eno's album 'The Long Walk' contains many of the ambient landscapes that have defined his career. Spiritual and spare, the album contains many minimal pieces along with more detailed and complex compositions.

Fragile (Music)

Roger Eno's 2004 release Fragile (Music) was his first album for four years and was perhaps the most uncompromising, personal and starkly beautiful of his career. Comprising a series of haunting and spacious computer manipulated piano pieces, the quietly intense compositions were the positive and cathartic outcome of the creative chronicling of a period of depression that blighted the composer's life during the early part of the 2000s. With echoes of the cool Minimalism of Erik Satie and Harold Budd, Fragile (Music) represented a supremely consistent and moving statement.

Anatomy

An exquisite companion piece to Fragile (Music), Roger Eno's Anatomy expands upon the spare, piano only, experiments of his previous album, with a series of instinctive and reflective keyboard instrumentals deploying delicate textures and his typically distinctive use of space.

Flood 

Flood was constructed by Roger Eno for the 2008 Salthouse Art Festival in North Norfolk. It has since been heard in other spaces around the world.

Utilising birdsong, bells, sparse keyboard melodies, vocal textures, and bass notes in an intentionally random way, the album is an attempt to emulate a soundtrack, or atmospheric musical backdrop as opposed to creating a specific musical focal point.



 

Ted Sheldrake

A side-step away from the work we have heard him produce previously, Roger Eno explores the ╩╗everyman╩╝ who lived simply and quietly next door to him for 12 years. Thirteen haunting tracks, each uniquely affecting, sometimes amusing and without any hint of affectation. Sweet yet dark, Roger captures a man scratching out chinks of light in an otherwise overcast land.

Endless City/Concrete Garden

A new collaboration between Will Thomas of Plumbline and Roger went on sale in June 2013. Full of intense beats, the softness and warmth of this new album comes through in every track. It is a departure from their last collaboration but contains the treated atmospheric recordings that Will has become known for.
