Exploring Roger Eno’s Cinematic Ambient Music 

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

If there’s a single name synonymous with ambient music, for many, that name is Eno. Despite there being multiple pioneers in the genre, spanning several decades—from Erik Satie to Aphex Twin—Brian Eno is largely considered to be the genre’s chief innovator and responsible for coining the term and concept, in the liner notes for his 1978 album Ambient 1: Music for Airports. Yet there’s another Eno closely linked to this genre: his brother, Roger. Roger Eno—who is 11 years Brian’s junior—is a steady, prolific musician, with a discography spanning over three decades and 25 albums (both solo and collaborative). He made his initial foray into music with 1983’s soundtrack album Apollo, which he created alongside his brother and the renowned producer Daniel Lanois.
