New Eno music gets 'generative'
Author: JT Smith
From Wired: "With software like Acid, Logic, Cubase and ProTools, musicians now have on the desktop a seemingly limitless ability to cut up, affect, loop and rearrange sounds. Altering the tempo, pitch and feel of a beat has become almost as easy as changing the font in this sentence. But that's not necessarily a good thing, Eno said. These programs lead musicians to "attend to details at an infinitely fine level whilst ignoring the macro," said Eno, one of the first popular musicians to experiment with tape loops and electronics."
