The serene, delicate songs on Another Green World sound practically

meditative, but the album itself was an experiment fueled by

adrenaline, panic, and pure faith. It was the first Brian Eno album to

be composed almost completely in the confines of a recording studio,

over a scant few months in the summer of 1975. The album was a proof

of concept for Eno's budding ideas of "the studio as musical

instrument," and a signpost for a bold new way of thinking about

music.

In this book, Geeta Dayal unravels Another Green World's abundant

mysteries, venturing into its dense thickets of sound. How was an

album this cohesive and refined formed in such a seemingly ad hoc way?

How were electronics and layers of synthetic treatments used to create

an album so redolent of the natural world? How did a deck of cards

figure into all of this? Here, through interviews and archival

research, she unearths the strange story of how Another Green World

formed the link to Eno's future -- foreshadowing his metamorphosis

from unlikely glam rocker to sonic painter and producer.
