I gave this a 5 Star review, called it my "disc of the year".  It's
really a fantastic album....Eno I love so very much and often will put
on some of his ambient stuff to lull me to sleep at night.
I think that GG would be very fascinated with people like Eno who
pioneered taking musical sounds apart and re-assembling into something
entirely new, almost familiar but yet often hauntingly different

Since it has come up at F Minor,
here's a copy of an email I sent to a member
some time ago:

"And in this corner: Glen Gold, child wonder, Virtuoso of the piano
self-proclaimed specialist of unfinished works - And in this corner:
Brian Eno,
non-musician, self-proclaimed 'uncertain piano', prolific composer..."


 One has to wonder what Gould would have made of Eno's 1975 Pachelbel
Canon in D Major. I enjoy it, liner notes educational - not obligatory
listener's satisfaction. Part One:


  'Zenph' (not Senf) will have a little trouble "re-performing" it but
enough encouragement who knows? Sony? GGF?
