Brian Eno – An Ending (Ascent) (1983)

Just one of the many wonderful pieces of ambient electronica released by Brian Eno and a variety of collaborators in the early 1980s.

“An Ending (Ascent)” is the final track on the Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks LP released in 1983.

This music was originally recorded in 1983 for a feature length documentary movie called “Apollo” later retitled For All Mankind, directed by Al Reinert. The original version of the film had no narration, and simply featured 35mm footage of the Apollo moon missions collected together roughly chronologically, and set to Eno’s music as it appears on the CD.

Excerpts from the track also featured in the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games to accompany the showing of photographs of “friends and family of those in the stadium who cannot be here tonight”.
