Interviewed for the Red Bull Music Academy last week, ambient music legend and producer extraordinaire Brian Eno waxes lyrical about his storied career. He’s had an interesting few years, producing for world-beating indie bores Coldplay, throwing his hat back into the ambient ring with Lux, and most recently collaborating with weepy electronic type James Blake.
This no doubt gives him plenty of ammunition to chatter about, but he’s never needed much prompting and details his new audio-visual exhibition 77 Million Paintings, his healing compositions for hospital, how he’s met scores of children who were born to Discreet Music and plenty more.
