New album and free iOS app out from Brian Eno and Karl Hyde
June 25, 2014
in May, Brian Eno, Karl Hyde and Warp partnered with Lukasz Karluk, the
creator of ‘HoloDecks’ and creative studio ‘Toby and Pete’ to present
an interactive ‘Augmented Reality’ iOS app.
Now, to celebrate the imminent release of new album High Life, the app has been updated with a brand new song and design for “Lilac”.
The Eno • Hyde app is available now on the App Store as a free download
and is designed to be used with your Eno ∙ Hyde vinyl record once
released or a ‘virtual record’ accessible free at www.enohyde.com/app.
High Life, the second album from Eno • Hyde, was written and recorded immediately following the release of ‘Someday World’
and will be released by Warp Records on July 1, 2014. There is
currently an audiovisual stream of the full release at Pitchfork: http://pitchfork.com/advance/479-high-life/
High Life clearly displays the
inspiration the partnership has taken from the repetitive minimalism of
composers like Steve Reich and Phillip Glass, combined with the
polyrhythmic music of Fela Kuti and funk.
