Brian Eno
Musician, producer, visual artist, thinker and activist - Brian Eno first came to international prominence in the early '70s as a founding member of British band, Roxy Music, and immediately followed with a series of highly influential solo albums. 

His visionary production includes albums with Talking Heads, Devo, U2, Laurie Anderson and Coldplay, whilst his long list of collaborations include recordings with David Bowie, David Byrne, Grace Jones, Karl Hyde, James Blake and many others.  His visual experiments with light and video continue to parallel his musical career with exhibitions all over the globe, from the Venice Biennale and the Marble Palace in St. Petersburg to Beijing’s Ritan Park and the sails of the Sydney Opera House.

In recent years he has released a series of new albums on Warp Records including Small Craft On A Milk Sea, LUX, The Ship and most recently Reflection. The latter was simultaneously released on i-Tunes App as what is probably the world’s first infinite album.
