is a multimedia art project collaboration between interactive artists Human
and musicians The Black Dog
. With the project set to launch April 24, 2010 at the Sensoria festival of music and film
, the project recalls Brian Eno's 1978 work, Ambient 1: Music for Airports
Eno, who is often credited with coining the term "ambient music,"
discusses his original inspiration in the Koln airport
: to provide music which didn't interfere with human communication, but could endure for long periods of time in public spaces and easily interrupted without causing suffering for the listener. This Music for Airports
LP, long considered to be the first long-playing ambient record
, has provided the soundtrack for many film meditations: 1
and so on.
Recordings of The Black Dog's Music For Real Airports
will be available on some combination of vinyl and CD shortly after its debut at the Millenium Galleries, with a tour of gallery spaces and live performances to be announced shortly.
