NEWS UPDATE: 22ND JANUARY 2021

Thanks to Michael, Joe, Dario, Rory, Martina, Samantha, Madeline, Roger, and EnoWeb's own newsbot Tom Boon in no particular order for these news items.

A Quiet Scene – the video installation of over 100 short films accompanying Roger and Brian Eno's music from Mixing Colours and its subsequent Luminous EP – will be screened from 22nd January to 21st February 2021 at The Music Center's Jerry Moss Plaza in Los Angeles, in collaboration with non-profit radio station dublab. For the first three days of the event, it will also be live-streamed so that viewers around the world can enjoy the mix.

And following CSI and Law and Order, A Quiet Scene is getting in on the franchise action with A Quiet Scene: L.A. Residents are invited to make films of Los Angeles with a soundtrack of one of the pieces from Luminous (these also appear on the Mixing Colours Expanded Edition). The chosen films will then be displayed from 20th March to 18th April.

And – finally, after decades of people sneering at ambient music and saying "Has he done Music for Lifts yet?" – new Eno music will be played all year in the Schlossberg elevators.
