Brian Eno - Ambient 1: Music For Airports (1978)

| Ambient | Experimental Synth-Electronic |

Ambient pioneer, glam rocker, hit producer, multimedia artist, technological innovator, worldbeat proponent, and self-described non-musician -- over the course of his long, prolific, and immensely influential career, Brian Eno was all of these things and much, much more. Determining his creative pathways with the aid of a deck of instructional, tarot-like cards called Oblique Strategies, Eno championed theory over practice, serendipity over forethought, and texture over craft; in the process, he forever altered the ways in which music is approached, composed, performed, and perceived, and everything from punk to techno to new age bears his unmistakable influence.

Ambient 1: Music for Airports is a giant leap forward in music history. A genre defining, and perhaps one of the most important albums ever made, Music for Airports is the prime early record of ambient music. Consisting of "Four Long Paintings In Form Of Music", it carries a very easy and light atmosphere during all its duration. With Piano loops, that repeats itself emotionally during the whole song, short synths, that add helps add the magic of the album, and low-volume structures, this evolving pieces gently and charmingly attack the listener's subconsciousness and drowns him into its beautifulness. A perfect album, in very all aspects.
