Haunting melodies create a soothing ambience.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Music for Films (Audio CD)
These 18 brief tracks seem to merge seamlessly with one another, gradually creating an atmosphere that is at once melancholy and soothing. Each track develops a simple theme, creating layers of haunting ambience. This music has a mysterious quality, and impresses itself gently on the listener.Perhaps seeming a little vague on first hearing, this plangent music gradually takes a hold on one's imagination, which can then enjoy visualising fictitious scenes from 'films' for which Eno may have been writing. This is music which gently persuades, rather than rudely insists, that one listens. It seeps into the consciousness, rather like the scent of woodsmoke on a woodland walk in winter.Its seductive melodies and plaintive tones make this the ideal music for relaxing and allowing the cares of the day to drop away. On a separate note, and for any other Primary school teachers out there, this music makes great inspiration for Dance and Drama!
