An Ending (Ascent) by Brian Eno

Album: Apollo: Atmospheres and SoundtracksReleased: 1983
  • The track, along with the rest of the album, was composed for the film For All Mankind, a documentary on the early years of NASA. The film wasn't completed until 1989.
  • Aside from those that feature country & western guitar, "An Ending (Ascent)" stands out from Brian Eno's other ambient tracks due to its clear use of discernible (yet slow-moving) melody.
  • The track has appeared in a number of media uses, including in the TV series Jam, Top Gear and Nip/Tuck; films Traffic, 28 Days Later and Drive; and David Firth's animation Salad Fingers.
  • Frou Frou sampled the track in their song "Hear Me Out" in 2002, as did Burial in 2006 for "Forgive."
