In this video Brian Eno talks about perfume, pornography and pissing in Duchamp’s urinal.
This, from a man who has produced (amongst others) Talking Heads, U2, Coldplay, Devo, David Byrne, Laurie Anderson and James – as well as being a prolific musician and artist in his own right, starting out as a member of Roxy Music in the early 70s, and inventing the genre label “Ambient” along the way.
I know what you’re thinking – another post about Brian Eno ? Already ?!? Change the tune already ! Tell us something useful !
Well, tough. I only just found this, and it’s fantastic, and I wanted to share it with you. I’ll post something technical about using EQ or compressors or something again soon, honest.
In the meantime, if you want some genuine insight into one of the greatest producers of all time, both as a producer and as a person, this is a great place to start. (The other place would be his 1995 book – A Year With Swollen Appendices: The Diary of Brian Eno, which I strongly recommend.)
