After ‘Music for Airports,’ Brian Eno turns to hospital soundscapes

Brian Eno, the former member of Roxy Music widely credited with inventing ambient music, is working on light and sound installations designed to provide a “healing environment” inside hospitals. It’s a fitting setting; Eno’s ambient work, as exemplified by albums such as Ambient I: Music for Airports, is said to have been inspired by his own experience of spending an extended period in hospital following a car crash.
