- Brian Eno, 1978.

Surprise! Not bad, but flavorless, dull and uninspiring. Over one hundred tracks during its sessions were written, with only ten making the album's final cut. Loving the double bass used here! But on the contrary, Simon notably stated that, “We’re both ‘sounds’ people… We’re both about soundscapes.” And, in fact, some of the songs do feature some very Eno-esque trippiness — the track “Another Galaxy,” for example. Other contributors to the music include the late David Bowie (with Nile Rodgers), Moby, Pure, Ministry, and the Future Sound of London. A true genius!

It’s worth mentioning that the album was Paul Simon’s highest-charting success since 1990’s Rhythm of the Saints. Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno.

This evening I settled down to watch a film called "Land Of The Minotaur" (AKA "The Devil's Men") and as I was watching the opening credits I was sure I had seen his name flash by, so I backed up the DVD and played that bit again and sure enough, he did the soundtrack...it's wonderfully sinister and unmistakably Eno....and once I knew he was the artist I certainly paid much more attention to the music than I probably would have otherwise. A master of ambience. The band was composed of David Byrne (lead vocals, guitar), Chris Frantz (drums), Tina Weymouth (bass), and Jerry Harrison (keyboards, guitar). Brian Eno is without a doubt one of the original pioneers of what we call elctronic music/techno/etc today. A different sort of music school for today's musicians. I recommend starting with "Another Green World" which is where you can see a cross-over from pop format to ambient soundscape. Kuti is the son of Nigerian afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. Music for White Cube is the most minimalist music Eno has ever created. While Eno contributing to soundtracks is nothing new for Eno, what is surprising is this particular film — a very risqué combination of live action and cartoon. Can you hear it? The Dune Soundtrack. It's more ambient, but with an emphasis on digital piano and corny violin synths. Yes, please subscribe me to: This was a one-off CD of sound sketches made by Brian when he was working on his 1998 installation with Jiri Prihoda in Prague. Somewhat ironically, he composed the entire thing on a Mac! In the late ’90s, Eno and his longtime ambient collaborator, trumpeter, and composer Jon Hassell contributed some deep, new-agey synthesized soundscapes to Senegalese singer and guitarist Baaba Maal’s track “Lam Lam.” As a side note, remember how Talking Heads’ Remain in Light featured an attention toward “African sounds”? He is the king of ambient music. Let us know in the comments below! Although Eno and the Talking Heads had worked together before, and David Byrne would later go on to record a duo album with Eno, this particular project was considered a bit of a departure for both parties musically. The soundtrack to David Lynch’s 1984 sci-fi epic Dune was produced by Brian Eno and largely written by Toto, although one song (“Prophecy Theme”) was penned by Eno himself, alongside ambient synthesizer-soundscapes producer Daniel Lanois and Brian’s brother, Roger. Holland's work adds a nice complexity to the richly layered sound templates, and the captivating moments far outweigh the parts that don't quite click. You have to listen to him at least once in your lifetime, if you can.
