Unbelievable, I’ve never seen this before, I feel likeI’ve got my old enthusiasm back again just by watching this.
To say I’m blown away by it is an understatement, especially the studio and tracking footage,

Fascinating - I've not seen that before either.

Yes, it is fascinating, in the fact that a lot of extremely interesting music was being made, even by today’s standards, with what was basically, very primitive gear, in a lot of ways, just industry standard stuff at the time.
The sounds on the Fripp And Eno album No Pussyfooting are still mysterious and otherworldly, Chris Spedding, his guitar playing on Needle In The Camels Eye is just amazing, very interesting watching him lay that down in the studio.

The title tune from TV's 'Arena' arts programme haunted me for many years, but it was only recently that I discovered that it was written by Brian Eno on his 'Another Green World' album.

The Windows 95 start-up sound is also one of his.

Another Green World completely freaked me out, when it came out it sounded like nothing else, what were these sounds? where did they come from? what instruments made them? It instantly made all other music at the time sound dated, and familiar, it was a pivotal point, it changed everything, to say my enthusiasm was boosted is a major understatement, it changed my life.
David Bowie said about Another Green World "it’s essential, it’s transcendental"

That EMS console would be worth a fortune today! Looks like it's two AKS and maybe a mixer? I wonder what became of it. He sold an AKS on VEMIA years ago.

Wonderful and inspiring!

Thanks for posting it.

I feel like a plant that's just been watered.

I didn’t get much out of it, you couldn’t really see what he was doing technically. I preferred the Arena programme about him. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CPOz5-rcIeA
This is interesting too, I haven’t watched it all, just skimmed through https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=R3wxEo9FU0w

It’s more a documentary of the time for me, his place in Portobello where he lived, the market, my stomping grounds too, it was still very much like that when I used to go there. He’s so young in this film too, interesting hearing his thoughts, he comes across as a bit naive, and it’s amazing how his wife, and the media, helped to shape his forthcoming career, and the studio footage is very interesting,

I like his honesty, and his attitude to life, he’s not scared to acknowledge it's underbelly, never has been, and also, he knows when to stop doing things.

This naivity is so essential in creativity.

Sh*t we been through in life going through in life is also so essential in creativity
although we can completely shut down when the sh*t is too much.

Getting bogged down by becoming too knowing is when we make ourselves stuck in quicksand.
