a continuos condition of the environment

June 22, 2005

I want the music to be as much as possible a continuous condition of the environment something that you add to your environment something that creates an atmosphere in it or a continuous aspect of that environment in the same way that painting is. And therefore I want the music to be capable of being entered and left at any point. So this mean that I’m not going to have a narrative structure. I’m going to have somehting that is if you like a constinuous texture or an ambience which is why I use the phrase “Ambient Music”.

Brian Eno 1986
