Brian Eno, one of the pioneers of ambient/electronic music has just unveiled a new Sonos Radio station called The Lighthouse. Available via Sonos Radio’s ad-free HD audio tier, the channel is broadcasting classic songs from his career alongside previously unreleased music and more.
Lighthouse will feature hundreds of unheard tracks, the earliest of which is from 1990. According to Eno himself, The Lighthouse will serve as a “living collection” where he will continue to release selections from both past and new musical projects directly to fans across the world.
“New pieces will be entering the mix and some of that will go back even further,” explained Eno in a press release. “You will be listening to a sequence of tracks which will be randomly generated, chosen by chance so there is the possibility of odd, I hope exciting collisions — things that are very slowly next to things that are very fast next to things that have no tempo, no pulse at all.”
In the coming period, Eno will host a series of three programs airing on The Lighthouse, starting with Program 1, where he discusses the unreleased material and why he’s finally decided to share part of his archive with the world. Program 1 is available now on The Lighthouse on Sonos Radio HD and is free to all Sonos customers through the in-app Sonos Sound System archive.
