Featuring decades worth of music from installations around the world.

Brian Eno has announced Music For Installations, a box set collecting unreleased, rare and new music from the iconic experimentalist composed for art installations.

The collection is available in a 6xCD or 9xLP set featuring music from 1986 to the present. Much of the music has never seen a physical release and none of it has ever appeared on vinyl.

It features music used for installations at locations including the Marble Palace in St. Petersburg, Beijing’s Ritan Park and the Sydney Opera House. The final disc is titled Music For Future Installations and includes entirely new recordings. Last year, Eno brought his installation work into the home with Reflection, a generative app that does not end.

Music For Installations is out May 4. Take a look at the set and track list below.
