Ambient @ 40 – University of Huddersfield – Conference on Brian Eno’s Music for Airports



In the forty years since the release of Brian Eno’s Music for Airports the concept and aesthetics of ambient music have proliferated, influencing artists as diverse as Taylor Deupree, Steven Wilson, David Lynch and The Orb, infusing drone, microsound, minimalism and experimental electronic music as well as aspects of contemporary instrumental music. The aim of this two-day conference is to appraise ambient music in relation to Eno’s milestone release.
