Brian Eno

Brian Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno, sometimes simply Eno, (born May 15, 1948), is an electronic musician who started his musical career with Roxy Music. He then went on to produce a number of highly eclectic and increasingly ambient electronic and acoustic albums.

He collaborated with David Byrne, formerly of Talking Heads, on My Life in the Bush of Ghosts[?] which was one of the first non-rap/hip hop albums to extensively feature sampling. Eno collaborated with David Bowie as a writer and musician on Bowie's influential "Berlin trilogy" of albums, Low[?], Heroes[?] and Lodger[?], on his later album 1. Outside[?], and on the song "I'm Afraid of Americans." Eno has also collaborated with Robert Fripp of King Crimson and with the German duo Cluster.

Eno has acted as a producer for a number of bands, including U2 and James. He won the best producer award at the 1994 and 1996 BRIT awards.

He is an innovator across many fields of music and recently he has collaborated on the development of the Koan algorithmic music[?] generator. He has also been involved in the field of visual arts.

The band A Certain Ratio[?] took their name from the lyrics of Eno's song "The True Wheel" (on Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy).
