Brian EnoBrian 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-ra/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, with Jon Hassell and with the German duo Cluster.
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).
Brian Eno is also a columnist in The Observer.
