Brian Eno & Laraaji - Ambient 3: Day of Radiance

The titles says it all. Episode 3 of Eno's ambient series, this time in collaboration with Laraaji, whom you may already know of a track he contributed to A Brief History of Ambient: Volume 1. Rather excentric and not ambient in the sense as you might expect it, as it features very little electronics.

Wikiquote: "Laraaji uses a variety of acoustic stringed instruments such as a hammered dulcimer and 36-stringed open-tuned zither.

The first three tracks are variations on a theme named "The Dance", and are delivered in a fast, hypnotic, Gamelan-like, rhythmic pace on a hammered dulcimer. Eno's input is not only in the role of producer; he also adds many creative touches to the natural instrument-sounds. In particular, he "layers" the tracks, after which he applies phasing, reverberation/delay effects and graphic EQ to the point at which the dulcimer almost sounds like other instruments."

Expect minimalistic movements but broad views.
