Musician and composer Brian Eno, renown for a legendary catalog of sparsely inhabited and evocative soundscapes that has outlined and continues to form a whole style of ambient music, is now apparently a turntablist of kinds. Whereas broadly identified for his aural compositions, lesser identified is the artist’s impressed exploration of sunshine as a medium realized within the type of LED-illuminated mild containers. A restricted assortment of LED-illuminated turntables created in collaboration with London’s Paul Stolper Gallery is Eno’s newest meditation of colorscapes.
With a restricted version run of fifty, the turntable is clearly extra artwork piece than audiophile part, with every unit engineered to accommodate a duo of multi-color LED illumination throughout the turntable’s acrylic base and platter, spinning to provide a haunting subtle glow of energized shade combos.
Referencing the sunshine sculptures of James Turrell and early twentieth century summary compositions of suprematism, the turntable is imagined to interpret music right into a “tangible” mild, swaths of illuminated hues “…as if caught in a cloud of vapor.”
“You’ve gotten the concept that this small factor, which might’t include that many directions, produces this vastly advanced interwoven, interdependent world,” explains Eno in regards to the venture, “One of many issues I like about this piece of labor is that it stands as proof of that.”
No pricing has been revealed for this restricted run of fifty artist-signed turntables completely accessible by means of the Paul Stolper Gallery, hinting if it’s important to ask, you in all probability can’t afford it.
