JD Twitch (Optimo) and Fergus Clark (NTS Radio) offer an exploration, in fourteen carefully selected musical works, of this "Fourth World" Music Concept imagined in the 1970s by Brian Eno and trumpet player Jon Hassell, two of the most innovative musicians and influential composers.
This sound universe is ambient and ritual, timeless, dark or glittering, and beyond any ethnicity. The hybrid form that we find there, organic and synthetic, has notably influenced current artists such as Oneohtrix Point Never and Visible Cloaks.
A world to discover!
