Music for White Cube was a specially commissioned sound installation by internationally acclaimed musician Brian Eno. Presented in 1997 at White Cube, Duke Street, it allowed Eno to further focus his ideas about ‘Generative Music’.
Eno recorded himself a few hundred times singing a single falsetto note, held for as long as he possibly could. In each instance he tried, unsuccessfully of course, to attain the same pitch. In this way the fallible human voice became the raw material for a sophisticated infallible software programme. This programme (called KOAN), allowed Eno to impose approximately 150 possible instructions on the recorded notes, in order to generate unique combinations of harmony, rhythm, tempo, vibrato and pitch. The resulting compositions were then selected and recorded on CD.
A catalogue accompanied the exhibition in the form of a limited edition CD, for which Eno selected highlights from his installation.
