3 stars An unexpected event....

An app for those who paid in full for Brian Eno's "REFLECTION", 2017, at its special priced edition, which would have allowed users to fiddle around with the algorithms of any given music piece, therefore being able to virtually interact and recreate an imprint of personal touch to the piece(s),, but due to the Brexit, the pre-order price became unresonable to do business with, so in able to work things out for both artist and consumer, ENO gave birth instead to this "Generative Music" recorded sampler "SISTERS" (2017) and was given out as a free download (consolation prize), until the end of February, as a way of saying thanks to those eagerly waiting for the app+album, which never came to be.

Well, SISTERS,without its unavoidable red tape is ,to put it simply, 4 remixes of one piece EP, sequenced (remixed) by Peter Chilvers, who is himself, alongside Eno, the technical wizard behind the interactive software's planning and creation.

This kind of conceptual presentation is no stranger in Brian Eno's ever changing discography and sonic/visual installations. He possesses a truly healthy iconclastic spirit, even if those icons are his own.

Peaceful, bright and perfect pitch in detail (Eno's "Ambient Music" oriented) the four versions are intriguing by themselves, the subtle alterations between each one accentuate the myriad of possibilities any composer faces on a daily basis, yet opens the door by crashing the monumental task, of having to choose a single option.

***3 PA stars.
