QUOTE
The composer and ambient-music pioneer Brian Eno once wrote that he considers it possible "our grandchildren will look at us in wonder and say: 'You mean you used to listen to exactly the same thing over and over again?'"

With his newest album, Reflection, released on Sunday - his seventh album in the past seven years - Mr Eno is making his boldest attempt yet to create what he has described as a third category of music, generative, to join the two we know now — live and recorded.

Using algorithms and increasingly powerful portable technology, generative music, he argues, will allow listeners to hear music that creates itself anew all day, or night, long, changing according to time, mood, weather or other variables.

The traditional album version of Reflection is a 54-minute single track that, much like the ambient music Mr Eno has been making since the late 1970s, uses looping meditative passages that change with slow variations.

But an app-based version of the project, available on iTunes for $US39.99 ($55), creates what Mr Eno calls "an endless and endlessly changing version of the piece of music", playing from the algorithms he fine-tuned while listening over weeks to the music the system created.

a bit more on Leonard Cohen - his songs have been covered by many artists and, when done nicely, were very evocative

Barb Jongr - great 2014 album Hard Rain - Music of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVr4uF4iCS4

Mate if you're feeling down DO NOT under any circumstances turn the bloody cricket on!!!! weirdsmiley.gif thumbdown.gif tongue.gif

Try jacsar's suggestion. How about some Hildegard, a remarkable woman who was able to hold her own in 12th century Germany and produce music that can lift you out of the mundane and melancholy (imo).

eb, do you feel sad when listening to uplifting music from classicals 200 yrs ago? yes, it lifts you and puts you down into areas we rarely touch or talk about...such is the power of rythms and thought and music...it touches our soul
