ENO • HYDE app & live performances

Eno • Hyde iOS APP

During the recording of their new album ‘Someday World’, Brian Eno and Karl Hyde kept a large whiteboard on one wall of the studio, onto which they wrote a series of rules to guide and challenge the creative process:

“Only Strong Feelings Please” / “Avoid Music” / “In Life Nothing Happens Twice” / “Ruthless Square Energy” / “Build Cities on Hills”

The last statements provided the inspiration for this new app for iOS devices – ‘Eno • Hyde’ – which takes the classic medium of vinyl and fuses it with image recognition an augmented reality technology to meld the analogue and digital worlds.

Download it for free in the App Store now.

Explore the ‘outsider architecture’ metropolises that grows around your vinyl copy of the album (or if you have a different format of the album here), soundtracked by ‘Strip It Down’ from ‘Someday World’.

The App is made by Lukasz Karluk, the creator of ‘HoloDecks’ and creative studio ‘Toby and Pete’


Last week Eno & Hyde performed live on Later… With Jools Holland with a selection of musicians that performed on the album, including Fred Gibson, Leo Abrahams, Chris Vatalaro and Don E. In Eno’s case this was the first time he has performed live on television since Roxy Music.
