Aaron Lee – Looking Outwards – 04

Mostly active during late 90s and around 2000s, Brian Eno is a pioneer of ambient music with many inspiring pieces those are familiar to only our ears. Windows 95 starup sound is one of them. This instantly recognizable pieces of music was to open up the new era of internet. Because the artist was asked to capture the symbolic image of Windows into roughly 6 seconds or even less, Brain Eno soon became obsessed by this task, making 84 different versions. Ironically Eno uses Mac and says that he never used a PC in this life. I am quite unsure whether Eno introduced certain algorithms to generate his work (probably not?). But this piece was so iconic to me that I wanted to discuss about it.
