Brian Eno Instrumental Essentials

Brian Eno Instrumental Essentials

Brian Eno has played in bands, produced hitmakers, made generative apps; the throughline is a belief in the creative potential of electronic sound. Before he formalized the idea of ambient, his work with David Bowie stripped art rock down to hazy minimalism (“Warszawa”); he also laced Harmonia’s pastoral Krautrock with ethereal electronic tones (“Welcome”). His most famous creation is ambient, that bewitching strain of environmental sound he famously deemed “as ignorable as it is interesting,” but the occasional track like “2 Forms of Anger” shows he’s not afraid of grabbing listeners by the lapels, either.
