In a span of 14 weeks, I dove deep into the life of one of my favorite ambient musicians, Brian Eno. Although Eno is best known for being a musician and a producer, he is much more—the Guardian describes him as an “intellectually mobile loner, scene-setter, systems lover, obstinate rebel, techno-prophet, sensual philosopher, courteous progressive, close listener, gentle heretic, sound planner, adviser explorer, pedant and slick conceptual salesman, and devoted fan of the new, undrab and surprising…” (Morley, 2010). Through the genuine desire to portray and visually represent these aspects of Eno, I created an interactive triptych to promote his lecture at the opening of an imagined exhibition, which features a sound-reactive drawbot and a book centered around his life.
Brian Eno was born in 1948 in Woodbridge, Suffolk, England. Eno is a musician, composer, record producer, singer, and visual artist, known as one of the innovators of generative and ambient music.
