Back 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.
