To celebrate the worldwide release of his new album LUX on Warp Records, Brian Eno is inviting fans around the world to contribute images and photos to document a DAY OF LIGHT, under the general theme ‘play of light’, which was an earlier name for the album.
The light/ , and during the broadcasts fans are invited to upload their own photographs on this light theme.
These photographs will be curated by Eno and his team in real-time, and the results made viewable to the world as an evolving, live and user-generated accompaniment to the music.
Created by Studio Remote & Thomas Traum in collaboration with Warp Records and Brian Eno
LUX, Eno’s first solo album in 7 years, is a 75-minute piece in twelve parts and was itself inspired by the play of light through the window of his studio. While all photograph submissions on this theme are welcomed, Eno particularly encourages fans to take pictures of subjects as the light of your day changes, perhaps out of the window of the room where you are listening to the album. Photos will be moderated on submission.
If successful, there is an intention to document all photographs and contributors in a permanent keepsake of this online event.
A day of light follows a series of special listening events for the album, from online premieres with SPIN (US), Q (UK), Der Spiegel (Germany), La Republica (Italy), Les Inrocks (France), The Vine (Australia), Cinra (Japan), De Morgan (Belgium) and live playback events at Sydney Opera House (Sydney), St Pancras Old Church (London), The Church of All Nations (New York) and throughout Terminal 2 at Japan’s biggest airport Haneda (Tokyo). The latter a noted connection to his famous 1978 ambient work, Music For Airports.
