Brian Eno, needs no introduction in the Electronic Music world. A brilliant composer and a computer geek who likes to give you a visual treat of his creations through his visual programs which complement and complete his work or Art.


The hour long music on this CD was composed by Eno for his installation at the Marble Palace, The State Russian Museum, St Petersburg, November 1997.

The first album to released on Eno's own label Opal as a burn on demand CD.



Atmospheric Lightness - here as the name suggests Eno creates a wonderful atmosphere full of light with what seems like electronic birds chirping throughout the 32 min long track. Seems like a bright sunny day in Eno world. Very soothing!


Chamber Lightness - now we move on from the outside world of atmospheric lightness into the chamber lightness , birds are long gone. The setting has changed( once can imagine entering the Museum now) but the theme remains the same, nice soothing sounds which will please any ambient listener.


A very nice ambient album. Sells dear. If you are an ambient lover you'll like it. Get it if you find one for cheap.
