Sure it must have been done before, but maybe time to do again.
(And in before "EVE has sound?")

Best tracks from the JUKEBOX?

Any "Out of EVE" tracks that should be included?

First suggestion: "Sons" by "Flowers" (but guessing you'll find it easier as Sons by Icehouse).

Dear me!

"Musak" Where did you get spelling like that from?

It doesn't even sound like "Music" Rolling Eyes

He probably meant to say "muzak".

"Elevator music (also known as muzak, piped music, weather music, or lift music) refers to instrumental arrangements of popular music designed for playing in shopping malls, grocery stores, department stores, telephone systems (while the caller is on hold), cruise ships, airports, doctors' and dentists' offices, and elevators. The term is also frequently applied as a generic term for any form of easy listening, smooth jazz, or middle of the road music, or to the type of recordings commonly heard on "beautiful music" radio stations."

Musak is a registered trade mark for that dreadful piped safe stuff they play in lifts/elevators, shopping centres and hotels. It used to come from Muzac Corp over the phone lines.

The firm behind this goddammed awful assault on our senses went bust, I hear. And one of those people involved was Brian Eno whom should have known better.

Perhaps the Op meant "Muzak" ?

Personally, I load up a mix of Black Sabbath, Uriah heap, Metallica, Classical, Evernesence (sic?)
It all depends on whether I am on a mission, hauling cargo, scanning down a WH or inside of a WH, stealthing around lowsec or scanning space for auto-spawns. Every category for me normally has a specific type of music to "go with the decor".

As for Muzak, there's not much of it which I enjoy, it sounds a bit too disconsonant to me, plus the company I work for plays it in the background all day long, so I suppose that kind of ruined it for me.

I knew a guy, oh so long ago, who carried a nifty .22 pistol and shot out Muzak speakers in elevators where ever he did roam. It took some getting used to.

Dont you EVER MOTHER****ING DARE to put Brian Eno's name in to the Muzak arena - he led the uprising against it and at the same time devised Ambient music.

You EVER say that again ill ****ing glitch you.

Originally by: Brian Eno

The concept of music designed specifically as a background feature in the environment was pioneered by Muzak Inc. in the fifties, and has since come to be known generically by the term Muzak. The connotations that this term carries are those particularly associated with the kind of material that Muzak Inc. produces - familiar tunes arranged and orchestrated in a lightweight and derivative manner. Understandably, this has led most discerning listeners (and most composers) to dismiss entirely the concept of environmental music as an idea worthy of attention.

Over the past three years, I have become interested in the use of music as ambience, and have come to believe that it is possible to produce material that can be used thus without being in any way compromised. To create a distinction between my own experiments in this area and the products of the various purveyors of canned music, I have begun using the term Ambient Music.

An ambience is defined as an atmosphere, or a surrounding influence: a tint. My intention is to produce original pieces ostensibly (but not exclusively) for particular times and situations with a view to building up a small but versatile catalogue of environmental music suited to a wide variety of moods and atmospheres.

Whereas the extant canned music companies proceed from the basis of regularizing environments by blanketing their acoustic and atmospheric idiosyncracies, Ambient Music is intended to enhance these. Whereas conventional background music is produced by stripping away all sense of doubt and uncertainty (and thus all genuine interest) from the music, Ambient Music retains these qualities. And whereas their intention is to `brighten' the environment by adding stimulus to it (thus supposedly alleviating the tedium of routine tasks and levelling out the natural ups and downs of the body rhythms) Ambient Music is intended to induce calm and a space to think.

Ambient Music must be able to accomodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting.
