When the visual and sonic come together as atmosphere, its hard not to think of the name: Eno. As we all know, Brian Eno might have embraced the label of a 'non-musician' on several levels to put ambient music into place. But his brother Roger's compositions stretch even further, envelop listeners through live performances.
Roger Eno's discography spans over three decades and 25 albums of work, both solo and collaborative (involving John Cale and others) where minimal piano compositions evolve through chamber music, folk, the traditional and the neo-classical.
Beginning his recording career with the 1983 soundtrack album Apollo created alongside his brother Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, the BAFTA nominated artist is heard throughout David Lynch's 'Dune', Danny Boyle's 'Trainspotting', Adrian Lyne's '9 1/2 weeks' and John Maybury's 'The Jacket'.
To Eno music is always strikingly visual. Most recently seen the previous edition of Utrecht's Le Guess Who? festival curated by Devendra Banhart, Eno's live performances are a celebration of the avant-garde in a blending of mood with uniquely haunting backdrops.

The fundamental aim of the festival is to create connections between Icelandic and foreign musicians, conjoining different art forms-from electronic music to visual arts- and to draw attention to electronic Reykjavik, the Electronic Music Capital of Iceland.
A four-day music festival where local and foreign musicians of all ages and diverse backgrounds come together to create music under the inspiration of Icelandic nature. Extreme Chill will be a mystifying journey around electric Reykjavík.
