Brian Eno has become an iconic figure within international contemporary culture. As an artist, musician, ideologue and systems-maker, he has not only written, performed, recorded and produced intoxicating and original music over the last thirty years, but has also established a philosophy of cultural production which links the inquiring spirit of conceptual art to the broadest applications of popular culture and sociology. Best known in the field of music, Eno’s discography as a musician, producer and artistic collaborator includes some of the most acclaimed recordings in the history of modern music. Artists as seminal yet varied as John Cale, David Byrne, Laurie Anderson, David Bowie, Bono, Peter Gabriel and most recently Paul Simon have chosen to work with Eno, and he is a sought after figure working across the spectrum of contemporary music, from guitar driven rock to film scores and electronica. And yet music is only one strand of Eno’s creative project. As a lecturer, visual artist, writer, political activist and futurologist, his opinions and ideas have been requested by institutions and think tanks on subjects as disparate as concepts of time, urban futures, perfume making and the history of art.
