Brian Eno first came across the work of Rick Holland in the late ’90s during the Map-Making project – a series of collaborative works between students of the Royal College, the Guildhall School of Music, the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Music, the National Youth Orchestra and the English National Ballet, among others.
In 2003, Brian Eno and Rick Holland made their first music together (although the resulting work does not appear on this album). In the intervening time since that initial session they have met infrequently to work on new compositions.
In early 2011, following the release of Small Craft On A Milk Sea, the pair resolved to finish the project.
DRUMS BETWEEN THE BELLS – TRACKLISTING

- pour it out
- the real
- the airman
- fierce aisles of light
- as if your eyes were partly closed as if you honed the swirl within them and offered me … the world
- a title
- sounds alien
- cloud 4
- breath of crows
- Original imagery by Brian Eno. Design by Nick Robertson.
