Biography

Celebrated English musician and producer Brian Eno was born in Suffolk, May 15, 1948. He reached his first tangible success as a member of the art-rock outfit Roxy Music playing there from 1971 to 1973. Initially, he was placed behind the mixer desk equalizing the instruments of the other participants. However, he gradually began experimenting with the sound processing it with his synthesizer and other electronic devices. This soon made Eno a full member of the band, who was no longer hiding behind the backs of the others, but was playing and singing with them. When the promo tour for the group’s second album, For Your Pleasure (1973), was over, Brian exited Roxy Music and embarked on a solo career. His opening efforts were based on pop music strongly impacted by electronica.

After releasing the debut record, Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) in 1974, Eno was forced to suspend his activities due to the long and difficult recovery after a car accident he had suffered in 1975. This could be the reason why the musician changed his musical preferences drastically after this event. This resulted in the 1975 record, Another Green World, bearing the first features of the emerging ambient style. The same year, Eno released an instrumental long player under the title Discreet Music, the first of the ten parts of the immense ambient artwork, fully and completely issued by the musician’s own label Obscure. In 1977, Eno made an attempt to come back to pop music with Before and After Science, but his main focus remained on experimentation. For instance, Music for Films (1978) became a certain type of soundtrack to a nonexistent motion picture. A year later, Brian delivered a peculiar album called Music for Airports. Its music had the purpose to free passengers from the fear of aircraft flights. At the same time, Eno maintained fruitful cooperation with several performers as a producer and musician. The most outstanding partnership of all was working with David Bowie and Talking Heads. As he entered the eighties, Brian Eno produced some of the famed U2 studio works. Still, this never posed him a problem to commit himself to his own music career.

In 1983, Eno recorded the Apollo Atmospheres and Soundtracks CD, based on the space inspired themes. In 1991, the album My Squelchy Life was already recorded and even released, but called off a little bit later. It was replaced by Nerve Net. In a short while, Eno released The Shutov Assembly. He kept working in several directions at a time and again formed top class tandem with David Bowie as he produced the singer’s album Outside (1995). Approximately at that moment, Brian explored deeply the concept of self-generating music. It implied creation and combination of separate music fragments and other sounds with their consequent reproduction in random order. In the new millennium, Brian Eno’s musical and producing activities did not cease in any possible manner. In 2001, he received Grammy for the excellent producing work on the U2 outstanding All That You Can't Leave Behind. One more year later, Brian again proved the endlessness of his creativity by releasing the experimental studio work Bell Studies for the Clock of the Long Now. 2005 saw him make Another Day On Earth, the first record in fifteen years featuring his vocals. It remains a great mystery what Brian Eno will bring to his listeners next time.
