Four subtle, slowly evolving pieces grace Eno's first conscious effort at creating ambient music. The composer was in part striving to create music that approximated the effect of visual art. Like a fine painting, these evolving soundscapes don't require constant involvement on the part of the listener. They can hang in the background and add to the atmosphere of the room, yet the music also rewards close attention with a sonic richness absent in standard types of background or easy listening music.
Relaxation is the opposite of tension; something the body uses as its defence against trauma of a physical or emotional nature. These 4CDs of specially recorded relaxation music will aid the quest for tranquillity and calm amid the stains and stresses of modern day life.
