Info for Mixing Colours



"Mixing Colours" invites listeners into a prismatic world of calm and contemplation: In their first collaboration, Brian and Roger Eno present an anthology of sonic inspiration.

"Mixing Colours" invites listeners into a prismatic world of calm contemplation. Based on a series of deliberately abstract colours, the innovative brothers evolved the new recording into a unique collection over the years. Their creative DG debut will reach an audience still unfamiliar with their artistry. The poetic set spotlights two celebrated ambient musicians at the height of their artistry.

Brian and Roger Eno have revolutionized many concepts of music production and performance, from pioneering treatments of pop music by Brian Eno to younger brother Roger Eno’s ambient synth/piano recordings reminiscent of Erik Satie.

These qualities resonate on this new release. Each brings his unerring sense of place and mood to the album. The timbre in each title deepens and opens up with each listening. Specific yet abstract titles guide listeners through the collection created over several years in a unique collaboration by both artists.

The result is deep-dive listening and landscapes of sound bearing titles like abstract art: Obsidian, Deep Saffron, or Wintergreen.

Roger Eno & Brian Eno



Roger Eno
was born in Woodbridge, Suffolk in 1960 and, from the tender age of 16, studied music history, euphonium, music theory, harmony and performance at Colchester Institute. He was greatly encouraged to experiment with composition by a favourite tuba teacher and drew on French Impressionism and English Pastoralism to begin on a path toward defining his own style of Minimalism. Delius, Elgar and Satie remain great inspirations to this day.

Brian Eno
is the most celebrated and prominent creator and theorist of what he has termed ‘ambient music’, and is a highly respected producer for some of today’s most high profile pop outfits.

Eno began his career in the early 1970s as the glam keyboardist for British band Roxy Music, but since 1978’s seminal Music for Airports, his musical output has chiefly centered around his solo explorations of ambient music. Eno has become the genre’s figurehead as its popularity has risen in subsequent decades, with releases like 1982’s On Land the perfect embodiment of the atmospheric, drone-based soundworld which many ambient musicians continue to aspire to. Since signing to legendary electronic imprint Warp in 2010, Eno has continued to produce contained but luscious ambient recordings such as 2010’s Small Craft On A Milk Sea, made with guitarist Leo Abrahams and experimental producer Jon Hopkins. Warp have subsequently reissued a sizable chunk of the composer’s back catalogue.

Perhaps Eno’s most captivating projects have been those where he has incorporated new technological capabilities into his own musical framework. Eno famously created the six-second startup sound for Windows 95’s operating system, and in 2008 created the generative music platform Bloom with Peter Chilvers, which allowed users of iOS software to make their own variants of ambient music on devices such as touch screen phones.

As a producer he has helped craft many of pop music’s seminal LPs, from Talking Heads’ Remain In Light to U2’s The Joshua Tree, and remains in demand for younger talent, producing James Blake’s 2013 album Overgrown. Beyond his role as a producer, Eno is also a serial collaborator. His 1981 album with David Byrne, My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts, remains one of his finest releases, matched by the quality of several collaborative LPs with guitarist Robert Fripp. Eno is a trained visual artist, and his turned his hand to film music alongside curating events such as Brighton’s 2009 Festival, for which he created the installation 77 Million Paintings.

This album contains no booklet.
