"Lilac," Eno + Hyde
Had this song on repeat all day, can’t stop listening to it. There’s also a great New Yorker bio of Brian Eno / review of his recent collabs with Karl Hyde from Underworld.
I have a trick that I used in my studio, because I have these twenty-eight-hundred-odd pieces of unreleased music, and I have them all stored in iTunes… When I’m cleaning up the studio… I just have it playing on random shuffle. And so, suddenly, I hear something and often I can’t even remember doing it.. and then, years later, on the random shuffle, this thing comes up, and I think, Wow, I didn’t hear it when I was doing it. And I think that often happens—we don’t actually hear what we’re doing. . . . I often find pieces and I think, This is genius. Which me did that? Who was the me that did that?
