Eno - Electrical circuits

The Album Discreet music was famous for Eno early experiments in Generative music, the method of recording is explained;

"liner notes contain a diagram of how this piece was created. It begins with two melodic phrases of different lengths played back from a synthesizer's digital recall system (the equipment used in this case was an EMS Synthi AKS, which had a then-exotic, built-in digital sequencer). This signal is then run through a graphic equalizer to occasionally change its timbre. It is then run through an echo unit before being recorded onto a tape machine. The tape runs to the take-up reel of a second machine. The output of that machine is fed back into the first tape machine which records the overlapped signals."

See Diagrams

... and a stylised version of the diagram.

With this in mind i'm going to create an animation than moves through a landscape of circuit diagrams much like the animation below moves through a painted landscape.
