THE SINGULAR ENGLISH POP STAR DAVID BOWIE died in the early days of 2016. His 50-year career at the frontiers of popular music drew thousands of heartfelt tributes from around the world. Loved for his fearless creativity as much as his elegance and personal style, Bowie inspired generations of other musicians (and fans) to follow their muse, get outside the box, and dance on it.
One of the lesser-known chapters of the Bowie story happened in 1977, when he moved to Berlin and began collaborating with another brilliant Englishman — music producer, godfather and name-giver of modern Ambient music, BRIAN ENO.
The so-called "Berlin trilogy" of albums: LOW, HEROES, and LODGER were the result. Like everything else Bowie did, they bear his unique creative stamp: innovative, provocative and, for the time, appropriately dark, while still accessible to his fans.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space from guest producer, HOS production manager and Bowie super fan JOSEPH JACOBS, we revisit this special chapter in the Bowie story, on a program called MOSS GARDEN: A DAVID BOWIE AMBIENT RETROSPECTIVE.
