Record Store Day 2020 Exclusive: ‘Rams’ Original Soundtrack by Brian Eno
Record Store Day 2020 sees the release of Brian Eno’s original soundtrack to ‘Rams’ – an intimate documentary about Dieter Rams, one of the most influential designers alive today.
It takes an unprecedented look at the life and legacy of the man responsible for so many iconic designs and in line with the aesthetic of the film, the director Gary Hustwit asked Eno to write the original score because of “a connection between Dieter’s design sensibility and Brian’s music.”
Despite the documentary being out since 2018, this is the very first time this score has been made available as a release.
Coming out in LP format (and with download code), the album contains 11 unreleased instrumentals, and in keeping with Rams’ principles on minimal design, it is packaged in a simple full coloured sleeve and pressed on heavyweight white vinyl.
