"Nice wikipedia article on him:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Eno [wikipedia.org] "

Interesting article...I'd never heard of him before. I saw he'd produced some records of bands I have heard of (U2, Paul Simon, Bowie...etc). I rarely read liner notes on albums anymore about who produced what, etc.

He seems to have had a lot of output which seems strange coming from a self described 'non-musician'...with little training or skills when he started.

While I'm open to try to give most anything a try listen once...I'm guessing I'd not find his 'ambient music' (what is that, muzak?) similar to my favorite style of music (blues based guitar driven rock).

But, hey, I'll give it a listen.

He's good. (1)

Eno turned Coldplay from kinda moody into much better!

The app review says little about what it does however. Is it like the KAOSOLATOR with a screen and more that 4 bars of memory?

I second this. I do like Here Come the Warm Jets and Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy, but his last (non-ambient)album and those awful Coldplay and U2 albums he helped produce really just make me want to listen to old 801 stuff.... As a matter of fact, I am going to put on TKN from 801 Live right now...

Because Adobe, provider of the software most often associated to read pdfs, has taken to the unholy combination of embedding into browsers to auto-view PDFs, and bloating the shit out of said software, resulting in an extended wait as the crapware loads itself up, then loads the PDF, then waits more while it figures out how to display it.

It's news if you're a fan of Brian, not so much if you're not. Since I AM ... it's news to me ... I was under the impression that his newest app was something called AIR ( http://the-palm-sound.blogspot.com/2009/09/air-brian-enos-new-iphone-app.html [blogspot.com] ) and didn't know about this release.

Since I'm not a fan of Apple, its over-priced, locked-in and locked-down douchebaggery, though ... it's all no use to me, except to wish i could get Bloom, Trope and AIR for my PC.

It has to be said, though that Eno's definitely nerd-newsworthy in himself; his involvement in the Long Now foundation, his interest in cybernetics - generative methods of creating art and music - all seem fairly relevant. (Not to mention his awesome music).

Much of the discussion in this thread seems very similar to what I used to hear from my friends when I was younger, regarding my appreciation of the Eno, though (my friends were a little politer in their dismissiveness, but the sentiment was the same). It's really worth remembering to reign in the fanboism, Rob! XD

Kinda - Air was created by Peter Chilvers (who co-authored the application Bloom with Eno) and vocalist Sandra O'Neill. Brian Eno is credited because the app is "based on concepts" he created, but I don't think he was directly involved at all.

Didn't care for Air, by the way. Bloom is definitely nicer. I'll check out Trope soon.

This is where the so-called Slashdot "editors" actually do some "editing". Slashdot always was "What Rob Malda Thinks Is Cool," so I'm not bothered by stuff like this. Editors help to establish a publication's flavor, and part of Slashdot's flavor is Brian Eno and The Who.

Re:Who is Brian Eno? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#29493857)

Oh come on, give him some credit.

He is probably one of the most influential musicians and producers of the 20th century.

Ever heard of U2? He produced seven of their albums.
He produced David Bowie's albums "Low", "Lodger" and "Heroes".

And that's just a start, after inventing the whole genre of ambient music. The collaborations and his own work are far to long to list. The chances are any album you like has some Eno influence somewhere.

Hardly nobody.

Re:Who is Brian Eno? (0)

I don't think Jean Michelle Jarre has ever released an album of ambient music.

He's done a whole load of electronic, sure, but Eno both invented the term 'ambient' and released Ambient 1: Music for Airports in 1978.

Re:Who is Brian Eno? (2, Informative)

Mister Whirly (964219) | more than 4 years ago | (#29494137)

I suppose, if you overlook all the work he has done producing other people's stuff (David Bowie, U2, Talking Heads, Devo , Depeche Mode, etc.). I think he gets more props as a producer than as a musician.

Re:Who is Brian Eno? (2, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#29494211)

Yet he's still done much many many more important things than you*, so I guess that makes you less than nobody.

*e.g., pretty much created the genre called ambient music; being largely responsible for some of David Bowie's best albums; both producing mega-sellers by bands such as U2 and adding a completely unique touch to lesser-known but highly-regarded albums such as Nico's The End. I definitely don't think he's god -- he's not even on my radar as far as favorite musicians -- but you're either a fool or a jackass to dismiss his work and talents.

While I'm not here to debate the existence of god or any such being. There are many that do, and I'm surprised at how low your standards are for calling one "God" compared to what others may do. For example, their "God" created the universe, heavens, man, life etc etc etc. You have chosen to use this term to a composer of Ambient music. This reminds me of the Bill Cosby quote,

I Saw Eno Last Night (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#29493649)

He gave a lecture in Long Beach last night, ostensibly to discuss his computer-driven art installation "77 Million Paintings". He has very interesting ideas on art and science and is liked and respected by many members of both communities. He's a "Great Thinker", IMHO. Plus, he's a kick-ass music producer, working with the likes of Bowie, Talking Heads, and U2, and was a founding member of Roxy Music. People who don't know who he is should find out more about him before they slag him off. He has a lot more in common with what /. is about than ignorant people might realize.

How the summary should've looked: (2, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#29494571)

Brian Eno, an English musician [insert Wikipedia link], recently released a new iPhone App. This new app, called Trope [insert link to story], is a followup to the popular Bloom [insert /. link to previous story], which allows users to create music by drawing shapes on their iPhones. Trope promises to bring darker music to your iPhone, and is available on the iTunes store [insert app store link]. This has been very exciting news around the office, as many here consider Brian Eno's works to be great.

There, now there's actual information about what you're talking about, so the people who have never heard of Brian Eno can appreciate what's been done. And I even toned down your irrelevant aside about how amazing you think he is so we can continue to pretend that there are editors working here.

OR better yet:

Brian Eno: iPhone apps finally matter. Apple may be worth a bite.

The rest is Bible Study

Why, Brian? Why? Don't tell you're a twatterer as well. Bryan Ferrari pretends to be a lord of the manor, Feargut Sharkey has sold his soul the the MAFIA and you? The iPhone?

Why are people slamming Eno on here? That surprises me. Are you guys really familiar with his work? If you don't at least have Here Come the Warm Jets or Taking Tiger Mountain and some of his ambient works, you aren't qualified to comment. Having used Windows 95 is not enough. His work is generally agreed upon to be substantially innovative and influential and I was happy to see it on Slashdot.

So What We Have Here Is The Modern Digital... (4, Insightful)

So what we have here is the modern digital Theremin. Why not have just said that from the beginning?

I just hope this guy isn't also a German spy who is stealing secrets off of your iPhone while you're playing with his toy.
