I was reading somewhere about Eno’s constant experiments with creating ambient background music scenarios with constantly changing soundscapes. So I did a quick experiment just using Logic Pro with no keyboard.
I created 15 instances of sound instruments. Then populated them with various pads and long-scaped synths. Each midi track has different lengths and is looped so this will go on for a while. The actual MIDI information was created randomly by just using the paint tool.
The rest was to set the BPM to 5bpm, maybe the slowest song I’ve ever created. And the total lenght is 600 or more bars.
The final touch is to add a couple of big Space Designers on the output to get that spacey sound.
That’s it. Took me less than ten minutes. I will let it run in the background in case it provides creativity or not. Sometimes this kind of music is so simple to make so it’s not even art, any longer.
