Brian and Roger Eno Share Sprawling "Celeste" Landscape Video
The track appears on their forthcoming double album 'Mixing Colours'
Published Feb 07, 2020Brian and Roger Eno have shared a new set of visuals for a song called "Celeste" from their forthcoming collaborative double album Mixing Colours.
The video was directed by Brian Eno and software designer Peter Chilvers. The sprawling landscape shows a seemingly unending horizon, as the camera pans further down a set of train tracks.
According to press materials, the video is meant to marry "the simplicity and contemplative qualities of its soundscapes with suitably uncomplicated, mesmerising imagery of slowly-changing, dreamlike panoramas."
In a statement, Roger Eno said of the song, "The more you listen to this, particularly with the fabulous worlds that Brian has created, you can really walk into this enormous landscape and stay."
Brian Eno added, "Nearly all of the work on this album was done on trains. I can sit there with my computer and headphones, and these pieces are absolutely perfect train music for me."
The Eno brothers began working on compositions for the record as early as 2005. They will release Mixing Colours through Deutsche Grammophon on March 20. You can pre-order the record here.
