Brian Eno: an Oblique Perspective

Back when I first started experimenting artistically with technology my focus was audio. With Andrew Phillips I co-produced a radio program called Soundscapes: Explorations in Radio, Sound, and Music, which the Village Voice described as both the best and worst radio show in New York City. I remember one of Andrew Phillip's artistic inspirations was Brian Eno. He used to cite Eno as taking both a vertical and horizontal approach to music/audio, meaning that Eno was as concerned with the density of sound as he was rhythm and tone. Brian Eno became a great inspiration for me as I evolved from working with audio to working with computer graphics.

The animation running above is a graphical tribute to Brian Eno, who made me appreciate oblique strategies and oblique perspectives.
