One of Eno’s most ambitious works to date; LUX is a 75-minute composition in twelve sections that evolved from a work currently housed in the Great Gallery of the Palace of Venaria in Turin, Italy. The album is Eno's third for Warp, following 'Small Craft on a Milk Sea' (with Jon Hopkins and Leo Abrahams) and 'Drums Between The Bells' (with Rick Holland).
Brian Eno’s first solo album on Warp Records, 'LUX' expands on the themes and sonic textures that were present on such classic albums as 'Music For Films' and 'Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks'. The release was celebrated with listenings in London, NYC, Sydney and in Haneda Airport in Tokyo, recalling the seminal 'Music for Airports' release.
