Michael Brook

Michael Brook, inventor of the "infinite guitar" and a noted producer, had been acquainted with Ivo for several years - his first 4AD appearance had been on Sleeps With The Fishes; a 1987 collaboration with Clan Of Xymox's Pieter Nooten. Brook's own album, Cobalt Blue, was a quietly stunning collection of instrumental pieces, featuring contributions from Brian Eno, his brother Roger, and Daniel Lanois. A press launch for the record was held at the London Aquarium, where Brook played a rare solo live set. This was later issued as Live At the Aquarium, the first in 4AD's short-lived series of limited edition 'temporary releases'.
