Music For Airports

In 1978 Brian Eno made "Music For Airports" (AMB 001), a record of music meant to create some peace in stressful Airports. Robert Wyatt co-composed and played piano on one track ("1/1", or first track, side one).
I just realized that the band Bang on a Can All-Stars recorded this music (originally made by using tape loops) live with real instruments ("Brian Eno: Music For Airports (Live)", Cantaloupe 2008). This music is peaceful, beautiful and a bit sad, and don't stray too far away from the original. May well be listened too far from all kinds of airports too!
May also be bought at eMusic.
