L’isola di Wyatt

It seems like a Robert Wyatt tribute will be held in Italy 26 June.

Since I´m a big fan of Google Translate, here is some of the info (from Italian Umbria 24) in not so beautiful English:

"Moon in June with a tribute to Robert Wyatt, onstage former CIS and Cristina Donà"

"The second edition of "Moon in june", scheduled Maggiore island on 25 and 26 June 2016, it will be presented during a press conference to be held Monday, June 6 at 11 am at Palazzo della Penna in Perugia".

"So Sunday, June 26, together for a show designed for the occasion, entitled 'The island of Wyatt' will meet some members of the CIS (Francesco Magnelli - Massimo Zamboni - Giorgio Canali - Ginevra Di Marco) along with Brunori Sas and Cristina Donà".

Psychic Temple "Plays The Music For Airports"

This one might interest you! A new take on Brian Eno´s "Ambient 1: Music for Airports" (1978), based on the track "1/1", on which Robert Wyatt played piano.

Head on over to Bandcamp to check out (and buy) Psychic Temple´s "Plays Music For Airports" (Joyful Noise 2016).

It´s not exactly ambient, but sounding really good in my ears.

Philip Glenn - Hammond organ
Danny T. Levin - trombonium, euphonium, marching baritone, valve trombone

The Canterbury Scene

I found this on Twitter today, and later saw that it was 4 years old, but so what?

Here is The Nimbus Hour (MixCloud) and almost 90 minutes of "The Canterbury Scene - Featuring Robert Wyatt, Soft Machine, Kevin Ayers, Hugh Hopper, Daevid Allen".
