Brian Eno has a very long line of credits and collaborations.  With Ambient 1: Music for Airport he coined the term "ambient music."  Per wiki:  The album consists of four compositions created by layering tape loops of differing lengths, and was designed to be continuously looped as a sound installation, with the intent of defusing the tense, anxious atmosphere of an airport terminal.

Ambient 1: Music for Airports, performed by Alaska Orchestra with live visuals by Carla Zimbler

I’d rather listen to Yoko screeching.  Inventiveness has its limits.

I’ve heard Yoko Ono screeching precisely once in my life. When I was young, I bought a 45 by either John Lennon or The Beatles (I can’t remember what it was), but on the B side was a song called “Touch Me,” and all it was (or at least all I remember from many decades ago) was a chord or two, followed by Yoko Ono making these primal screams. At that stage of my life - and I may still have been very young (I bought it at Waxie Maxie’s in White Oak (PS - I know Max’s son quite well)) - it was my WOAT (Worst of All-Time).
