Brian Eno has spent the last 40+ years pushing the boundaries of experimental and ambient music. In his career, he’s worked with some of the best musicians in the industry including David Bowie, Coldplay, Lou Reed, and David Byrne. In the video above, he discusses a new project called 77 Million Paintings. This latest work is a “constantly evolving sound and imagescape which continues his exploration into light as an artist’s medium and the aesthetic possibilities of “generative software””. The idea is that the music and images slowly fade in and out in a random, asynchronous manner to give a viewer a consistently unique experience.
“You surrender to the project. You surrender to the thing growing in its own way, and there’s a gracefulness in being able to surrender.’”
