  • electronic inspiration

    By Raconteur
    An early introduction into a style that would sweep the music scene into the present, Discreet Music advanced the notion of sound walls and sonic texture that groups like joy division, throbbing gristle, dead can dance, telepomusik, deep forest, cocteau twins and massive attack (to name a few) would refine into what is now modern electronica. Discreet Music, like other subsequent forays into ambient music by eno is sound stripped bare and may seem to the uninitiated as New Age, yoga-type music, but like other contemporary music — Reich, Cage, Glass, Sylvian — there is a depth to this music that becomes apparent after repeated listenings. At a time when experimental rock music was synonymous w/Prog Rock like Genesis, Yes, Pink Floyd, Triumvirate, V d Graf Generator & Gryphon, this is an enormous departure from that and Eno’s work with Roxy Music.
