On 23 March this year Brian Eno gave a talk at The British Library entitled Music For Installations - which is also the title of his new box set released today - and you can watch part of it above.

The sold out talk was part of the institution’s ‘Season of Sound’ series of events, in celebration of their sound archive.

As well as his notable work in Roxy Music, as a solo artist, in the field of ambient music and as a producer, Eno also is a highly regarded artist who works with the media of light and video.

His work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale, the Marble Palace in St. Petersburg to the Sydney Opera House and at The British Library event music that has been heard in Eno’s installations at galleries, airports, hospitals was played back.

The box - which is available in a 'super deluxe' 6 CD set, a standard 6 CD set and a nine LP vinyl 'super deluxe' set - is out today via UMC.
