    1. Its ok if you don’t get Eno. I hate it when everbody glomms onto MY discoveries. I used to play Eno on my radio show in the early 80s. And people would say, about Music for Airports, what the hell is that? Sound was his music.

  1. Strong lesson.
    ” I replace the element of skill considered as necessary in music by the element of judgement”

  2. I understand completely why Eno is revered by many today – and this is an interesting look into his work and thinking at the beginning of his career.

    But why was someone making an Eno documentary in 73?

    1. Roxy Music had 3 albums in the UK top-10 before 1974. They were a popular band, partly due to having an androgynous alien conjuring up experimental sounds from instruments they had never seen or heard before. Brian Eno was a fairly public figure, before he left the spotlight to focus on studio work.

  3. Fantastic! Glam Punk! So cool to see such a slice in time, 49 years ago, the making of Here Come the Warm Jets with Busta Jones and Phil Manzanera. Is that Robert Fripp recording in the studio around 14:15? Also what is the EMS in Eno’s home studio? I know he’s playing a VCS3 with Roxy Music but I don’t recognize the home studio EMS, the two patch matrix are at the top. There’s a quick full shot of the EMS at 1:42.

  4. Brilliant artist…unique experiment music….helped produce, and collaborated with other artists like John Cale, Ultravox, Cluster out of Germany, and many more….
