Perhaps best known as a musician and producer, he's also an artist, professor and thinker. Provocateur, cult figure, cerebral rock star, and studio experimentalist, Brian Eno has greatly influenced an encyclopedia of styles--from art rock to punk to world music to techno to ambient music. A founding member of Roxy Music, he went on to work as a solo artist and a producer/collaborator with U2, Talking Heads, David Bowie, Sting, Bono, and others. In other media, his music sometimes appears in films (Trainspotting, Velvet Goldmine, Heat), television programs and commercials.
Eno finished producing U2's award winning album All that you can't leave behind, in 2000 and is currently working with J. Peter Schwalm. He also expects to release an album of his own music later this year and is working towards introducing his Quiet Clubs into public spaces. ^"I've been making what I think of as a form of musical painting, visual and aural experiences that unfold in much the same way as my Ambient' music Quiet Clubs - the kind of club I'd like to go to."
Eno is a Visiting Professor at the Royal College of Art in London and has an Honorary Doctorate in Technology from Plymouth University. He was recently awarded an Honorary Professorship by the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. He is a member of Global Business Network, the Longplayer thinktank, and a patron of the Institute of Contemporary Arts as well as a founder of The Long Now Foundation.
