Music affects and changes people just as much as it evolves and takes on different forms as people experiment the various dimensions of music.
One dimension that people like Brian Eno took notice and has explored is music’s temporality or how it relates to time.
The tempo of music can make us feel different emotions from a slow, soothing melody to an upbeat, thrilling vibe. And Eno among others, found that by slowing down the tempo, one can experience another dimension of music.
This led to the exploration of ambient music. Other artists like John Cage and Paul H. Miller, inspired by the soundscape created by ambient music also delved into it.
