This is a 30 minute documentary featuring Brian Eno talking about his computer generated art work, 77 Million Paintings. Along with the documentary (an AVI file which was ripped from the DVD), I've included an ISO disc image of the software used to generate the 77 Million Paintings application. This will run on either windows or Apple computers (Intel Mac users should run the G4 application).
Review: He's the avatar of ambient and one of the original glitterati of glam, but Brian Eno started as a visual artist before he became captivated by sound and synthesis. Nearly 30 years ago, he began a return to the visual arts, and has synthesized a career that now runs in intersecting parallels with his music. From his first video, Mistaken Memories of Medieval Manhattan, Eno's work has evolved into light sculptures that reflect his music, slowly morphing illuminated shapes shifting in seemingly infinite patterns. On 77 Million Paintings, Eno adapts his concepts to a computer program that constantly shifts his patterns in layers. Some of them are abstract, some luminescent. There are almost Keith Haring-like patterns countered by a Jackson Pollock splatter-and-drip approach, but all are constantly mutating and combining. Like painting in motion, every subtle move and overlay creates a new picture--hence the title. In fact, every time the program is launched, the images are different, and if you run it forever, it will effectively never repeat. Eno has married his images to an equally morphing soundscape, a nonlinear, constantly shifting sound field of gong and vibe-like tones, drone pads, and odd, whooshing sounds and ambiences. Like his ambient music, it's meant to work in the background, but can also draw you into to its glacially evolving world. --John Diliberto
