  7. Fireside Chat: Brian Eno

    Electronic music didn’t start with Brian Eno, but it was certainly never the same after him. On Roxy Music’s first two albums he helped make synthesizers and tape effects part of a rock lineup, pricking the ears of future synth-pop creators such as Human League. As a solo artist he forged a new genre, which he dubbed ambient music, before effectively becoming a one-man genre himself, lending touches to Genesis (where he’s credited with “Enossification”), John Cale, and David Bowie during his golden Berlin period. There wasn’t much in the way of experimental 70s music that wasn’t made a little odder by Eno’s touch. But that touch could also be a multiplatinum one, as he showed as a producer for U2 in the mid-80s and Coldplay 20 years later. In the 90s he created perhaps the most widely heard music of all: the six-second start-up sound for Microsoft’s Windows 95 operating system. Typically mischievous, he later let it be known that he’d created it on a Mac.

  8. hr2 Der Tag: Die Herren der Algorithmen: Überwachung in Zeiten des Internets

    Als vor 25 Jahren die Mauer zwischen Deutschland West und Ost fiel und die DDR-Bürger die Archive ihrer Staatssicherheit stürmten, da standen sie vor Bergen von gesammeltem Material. Und bald reifte die Erkenntnis, dass die Stasi damals sehr häufig nicht wusste, was sie hätte wissen können, wenn sie in der Lage gewesen wäre, ihre Archive zu durchforsten. Aber dazu fehlte die Technik. 25 Jahre später gibt es diese Technik – und die Staatssicherheitsapparate der USA haben kein Problem mit dem Durchforsten noch viel größerer Datenmengen. Und sie sind nicht allein. Auch Privatfirmen sammeln ungezügelt unsere digitalen Spuren und entwickeln immer neue Techniken und Programme, um uns immer genauer zu verfolgen. Jeden von uns. Immer. Denn digitale Überwachung verlangt nach der Vollständigkeit der Daten und ist inzwischen auch in der Lage, diese unbegrenzt zu verarbeiten. Was bedeutet nun aber das Wörtchen “Datenschutz“ in diesen Zeiten? Hat es überhaupt noch Sinn, darüber zu sprechen?
