12b Music for Airports, “1/2” (excerpt) (1978) by Brian Eno
This was the first widely known ambient album based on purely electronic tonalities. Eno coined the term “ambient” by putting it in his liner notes, although Eno was not the first to experiment with such soundscapes—David Behrman, Pauline Oliveros, and Teresa Rampazzi all having explored similar concepts earlier.
