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.
