The Black Dog has announced that their latest album, Music For Real Airports, will be a musical comeback to Brian Eno’s seminal ambient release, Music For Airports.
Music For Real Airports combines new music with segments from over 200 hours of field recordings from airports in an effort to explore the ideas and associations that people have with them.
“Some members of The Black Dog were disappointed by Eno’s treatment of the subject in 1979 and have been considering how to produce a more meaningful response ever since,” according to The Black Dog. “Airports have some of the glossiest surfaces in modern culture, but the fear underneath remains.”
They go on to give Eno a swift kick in the cajones, saying “Unlike Eno’s Music for Airports, this is not a record to be used by airport authorities to lull their customers.”
Soma Records will release Music For Real Airports on May 10th, 2010.
Do you think that it’s time for a new take on Music For Airports? Certainly our perspective on air travel has changed…..
