Brian Eno’s Music for Airports Being Performed By Musicians…In An Airport

“Music for Airports” is an ambient music album created by Brian Eno, and released in 1978. It is considered one of the pioneering works in the genre of ambient music. Eno conceived the album as a form of functional music designed to create a calming and tranquil atmosphere, particularly suitable for airports and other public spaces.
