MIMO - When Music is Your Fix

Brian Eno Lectures on Art and Music in the 20th Century

In music industry circles, Brian Eno is perhaps best known as a record producer for bands like U2 (he’s produced seven of their albums so far), as well as Coldplay, Sinead O’Connor, Devo, David Bowie and Talking Heads, among others.

But Brian Eno is also very much an artist; he is a visual artist, a musician, and a composer, one of the originators of what is now referred to as “ambient” music. And his work on both the production and performance sides of multiple art forms has given him an interesting perspective on art and music that is of benefit to anyone serious about the music industry, recording and modern music.

Below is a video of a lecture Eno gave in Moscow in 2011 on music and the arts. Bear in mind, it’s over an hour in length (so make time to watch it); also, the introduction is in Russian, while the lecture itself is in English. But if you’re a student of the music industry, you have the rare opportunity to learn from an “elder statesman” in the video below.
