Celebrating the Absolute Wonder of Brian Eno on His Birthday

If there was ever a score for all of life’s moments that fall into the realm of the metaphysical, for the ineffable feeling inherent in human nature, and the beauty in the space between light and emotion, it’s in the sounds of Brian Eno. In an almost synesthesiac way, he manages to give us the sonic interpretation of that which we can only see, bringing to life the hidden textures of the world around us. And as the pioneer of experimental sound, he has been working for decades now, crafting music valuing theory over practice as a composer, producer, visual artist who builds landscapes of atmosphere that transport you into a state of mind beyond words. Over the years, he’s collaborated with everyone from David Byrne and David Bowie to to U2 and Paul Simon, as well as various filmmakers and artists, continuing to be as prolific as he is inspirational to an incomparable number of artists. And as today is his 64th birthday, what better way to celebrate than looking back on some of his most brilliant works. Enjoy.
