Gilbert and G. Lewis, respectively. It was released in 1980 by record label 4AD. Trouser Press wrote: "3R4 moves into the ambient drone music pioneered by Brian Eno, and its four tracks achieve an almost symphonic effect".
I know of two other Gilbert and Lewis albums from the period of the Dome albums;one of them is 3R4 from 1980. How this escaped the Dome Moniker eludes me? It's quite a bit more Ambient than Dome I suppose,and far more Eno;more Drone than Dome. Largely consisting of two lengthy atmospheric,and I repeat, Ambient tracks, and two short preludes to the former. For want of a better word,and for all intents and purposes, this is Dome 1and a half-ish.

Side Project from Wire Guitarist Bruce Gilbert & Bassist/Vocalist Graham Lewis. In 1980, after three relentlessly creative albums, the members of Wire were at an impasse, unsure of how to push themselves any further as a four-piece rock band. Lewis moniker and the very second album to be released on 4AD, eschews melody and structure in favor of ambient-noise soundscapes, metallic textures and tense moods.
Gilbert and G. Contents. 1. Album – Album, is a collection of audio recordings issued as a single item on CD, record, audio tape, or another medium.
During their frighteningly productive period in the early 1980s, Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis recorded a shop's worth of albums, staged art exhibitions, and produced Desmond Simmons, . Marias and Michael O'Shea. In the midst of this flurry of activity the duo somehow found the time to make the album 3R4 and release two singles for 4AD.
However, most of the album finds Lewis and Gilbert moving away from Wire's overt structures and defined sounds, particularly on the 20-minute "R," on which they let a few elements - tape manipulation, distant vocals, hints of percussion - drift into and over each other almost imperceptibly.
