After the ambient music to calm airport patrons, Brian Eno is now involved in another bizarre and enticing project: he created two light and sound installations to help improve the health of the patients of Montefiore Hospital in Hove, East Sussex, England.
Montefiore Hospital now features two Eno's healing soundscapes. "77 Million Paintings for Montefiore", located in the reception area, uses Eno's innovative "generative music" system for an ever-changing soundscape; it is based on the same technology as his music-making Scape iPad app from last year. Then the hospital's downstairs area (for patients, visitors, and staff) features "Quiet Room for Montefiore", a full album providing a fixed soundtrack.
Eno was inspired by the nurse Florence Nightingale for the project - based on the idea that music can produce improved psychological, physiological and biological outcomes of clinical significance in patient care.
