Brian Eno: Behind The Reflection – BBC Click

BBC Click’s Spencer Kelly spends an afternoon talking art, science, music and potatoes with music legend and godfather of ambient music Brian Eno.

His new app, Reflection, is a “generative” piece of music that changes every time you listen. In this extended chat we look in-depth at the rules and maths behind Reflection, where notes are altered depending on certain probabilities. We also hear some of Eno’s other ground-breaking generative work, including a very human robot drummer, some super-evil funk and a robot guitarist that could give Nile Rogers a run for his money.

We look at his sound and visual art, including 77 million paintings, get a sneak peek inside his notebooks, and find out how he invented the legendary Oblique Strategies cards.
