Icons by Dave Shibler

This list provides a comprehensive overview of Brian Eno's work, including solo records, collaborations and productions. The list is in chronological order where up to 1995 the year refers, in general, to the recording date; in subsequent years it's the date of release. All items are in album format unless stated otherwise. Note that compilations of otherwise available material and repackages have been not included in this list. Information on those, together with all session details about the records listed below (tracks, musicians involved, etc.) can be found in the encyclopaedic discography on Alex Rubli's Nerve Net archive site. Anything after 1995 should not be viewed as exhaustive, as there simply aren't enough hours in the day for EnoWeb to buy everything with Brian Eno's input, even if we had the inclination.

Note that in case of CD singles very often several versions exist and only one of them may feature the track(s) with Eno. Thus some care should be employed when buying/ordering them.

It goes without saying that we do not believe Brian Eno's input alone would make a disc worth buying! Some are indeed well worth avoiding. The EnoWeb Cabal tried to introduce a highly subjective grading system based on our honest opinion of what's hot and what's shot, but it wasn't a great success and was quietly sidelined. For the sections where those grades appear, this is what they mean.

Essential -- every Eno collection should include this
Nice to have -- good performances and/or worthwhile remixes
Collectors only -- most of us can quite happily continue to live without owning this
What are you thinking of? -- best avoided by all but the most rabid completists
Titles without an icon generally fall between the N and C categories; we don't have any strong feelings about them.

1983 Brian Eno with Daniel Lanois and Roger Eno: Apollo - Atmospheres & Soundtracks e
Notes: In 2008 Daniel Lanois told Gearslutz: "The main synth was a Yamaha CS-80. This is a polyphonic synth, one of Yamaha's first. On Deep Blue Day there are two guitars, a strumming Strat plays the rhythm and the steel guitar is my Sho-Bud single neck Professional. They were both recorded DI. Eno put a massive treatment on everything. The complexities of the chain are unspeakable! But those treatments were worked on for weeks on end." In 2016 he told The Atlantic: "that track, 'Deep Blue Day,' which showed up in the Trainspotting movie, that was done on a little Suzuki Omnichord, a little toy instrument. It’s essentially an electronic autoharp. That’s what we used on the track, but we slowed it down a lot. The early Suzuki Omnichords had great basslines. And by slowing it down, it developed this beautiful, luxurious jukebox sound."

Brian Eno Generative Music 1 SSEYO
Notes: Generative Music 1: 12 Self-Generating Compositions By Brian Eno: A 3.5" floppy disk with 12 Koan pieces written for the SoundBlaster AWE card. No CD versions of these tracks were released. Box has Anton Corbijn's photograph of Eno, also featured on the UK & US editions of Eno's diary. Disk carrier has Eno art. The music was composed using Koan generative music software from a company called SSEYO; its site also had 3 Koan pieces by Brian which didn't appear on the album in the same form. Unfortunately the music was very dependent on owning the correct PC soundcard and Windows version. It was supported up to Windows ME, but as time went on Creative Labs developed other sound cards which were not compatible with software written for the AWE, and did not continue to release AWE drivers for new versions of Windows; Koan ceased to be developed and SSEYO was taken over by another company in one of those Internet boombastic bubbles. The founders created a follow-up company to create new generative applications, Intermorphic.
Joseph Arthur Big City Secrets Real World CDRW64 7243 8 42177 2 3
Notes: Brian Eno sings backing vocals with Peter Gabriel on the second track, "Mercedes". Overall the album strikes me as rather over-produced. Joseph Arthur is an electrifying singer live, emanating raw energy and emotion. Some of that comes across on the album, but the production has a tendency to stifle it.

Brian Eno White Light/White Heat Brian Eno
Notes: A one-off single created for War Child's Musical Milestones auction. Brian's version of The Velvet Underground's song mixed Here Come The Warm Jets-style overtones with more modern sounds and included a sequence where Brian explained how he had first heard the track living in a log cabin outside Winchester. There was only one copy of the single and it sold for £40,000. At one time it seemed possible that the purchaser might release the single but it hasn't happened yet.
Various Glitters is Gold All Saints Records ASCD31
Notes: Includes 2 tracks by Brian, both longer versions of pieces which appeared later in the year on The Drop (Swanky & Blissed). Swanky is better in the longer form. Blissed has a couple of sound glitches on it.
Brian Eno The Drop All Saints (UK) ASCD32; Thirsty Ear (US)
Notes: The Drop showcases a new kind of music which Brian created. The album title went through a number of changes, including Swanky, Today On Earth [which he would pretty much return to 8 years later], Hup! and This is Hup! Reviews were less variable, being mainly hostile to the album -- partly, I suspect, because the album didn't deliver what's normally expected from Brian. Drop music was originally called "Unwelcome Jazz" because "most of the people I played them [the pieces] to don't really like them," according to Brian. He said: "they all share this quality of having melodies that go in very odd directions and take sharp turns and so on. They have another characteristic: they use a combination of instruments that are so recognizable, that come with a huge amount of cultural history, you know, like jazz piano sounds, the ride cymbal, all that sort of things. As soon as you hear those instruments you have some kind of picture of how the music was made. Within that, I place those things in an electronic landscape, which is completely another world, a world that never belonged to that music." Another proposed title was Neo Geo, and there are instrumental/approach similarities to Ryuichi Sakamoto's album of that name.
Brian Eno The Drop (Japanese version) Paradise Island FLCP-1005 (part of For Life Records)
Notes: The Japanese version of The Drop includes a bonus second disc with 3 tracks: "Swat & Rut", "Slicing System" and "Sharply Cornered". There is also a more substantial booklet which appears to list Brian's work up to that point, including the White Cube & Contra 1.2 CDs (see below).
Brian Eno Extracts from Music For White Cube White Cube Gallery
Notes: Music For White Cube was a sound installation created by Brian Eno for the White Cube gallery in London, which consisted of 4 CD players playing tracks of Brian singing one note with a background of traffic and other street sounds, which had then been slowed down and enhanced using audio software. As its title suggests, the catalogue CD includes extracts from the installation. The overall result is similar to the work of Thomas Köner. The CD was originally priced at £20, but as the numbers available dwindled, the gallery hiked the price, as is apparently traditional for limited-edition artworks. The run of the CDs was about 500, we think.
Brian Eno Contra 1.2 White Cube Gallery
Notes: Solely available at the gallery during the run of Music For White Cube, Contra 1.2 was a series of unique CD-Rs, each containing a different take of Contra, one of Brian's Koan pieces (previously unreleased). The CD-Rs varied in length from around 20 to 49 minutes. The inlay cards were also unique, each different design generated by Brian's software (possibly a Bliss/After Dark combination). Around 80 CD-Rs are believed to have been made and they have appeared at eBay from time to time. A short extract from Contra was broadcast on the Radio 3 programme Mixing It, and it also turns up in the background of the Nile CD game (see 1998).
Film Soundtrack The End of Violence Outpost Recordings; OPRD-30008
Notes: There are 2 soundtrack albums to accompany Wim Wenders' film The End Of Violence. One has music by Ry Cooder; this one has music by a variety of artists. Brian's contribution is a production of the (previously unfinished) Roy Orbison song "You May Feel Me Crying". As with much of Brian's production work at this time, the track includes him singing along.

Notes: Although only released in 1997, this album features previously unreleased music by Harmonia (Hans Joachim Roedelius, Michael Rother & Dieter Moebius) and Brian Eno from their first collaboration in 1976. Brian even sings on one track -- but the lyrics are only "Don't get lost on Luneburg Heath" over and over.

Notes: Terra Nova is a quarterly journal; this special issue includes a 74-minute CD of music from nature, imitating nature or creating soundscapes. Brian's 6-minute contribution is "Ikebukoro/Madrid/4", an excellent remix of "Ikebukoro" from The Shutov Assembly. You can read more about it here.

@mbassadors We Love You q Booth-Clibborn Editions
Notes: We Love You is a book + CD that brought together loads of Young British Artists with musicians, for a series of artistic and musical collaborations. Brian provides "Sensual Zero Gravity" with added words and noises by Marc Quinn. The track is an extended version of "Coasters" from The Drop. Quinn's input is the kind of uneasy-listening monologue done rather better by Chris Morris' radio programme Blue Jam, the book is uninspiring and the track says nothing new about Drop Music in this form that The Drop hasn't already covered.
Stone House Productions / Zap Media Inc. Nile: An Ancient Egyptian Quest c Simon & Schuster Interactive
Notes: Nile is a computer game for Windows; Brian composed the music for it in 1996. It's a mixture of unreleased tracks plus music which previously appeared on the soundtrack of Neverwhere and music from Generative Music 1. Much of the music accompanies re-tellings of Egyptian myths and stories narrated by Kelly McGillis. This is an enjoyable edutainment disc, but I did wonder at Brian's involvement given his public statements about how useless CD-ROM games are. Simon & Schuster Interactive used to have a page on it here with a link to a sample. In the UK the game is distributed by Zablac Entertainment.
UILAB Fires Duophonic Super 45s; DS45-CD19

In a blog post, Schwalm wrote: 'found this video on you tube. it features the track: "connecting heaven to earth" by brian eno and me which was released in 2000 on jvc. the record is called "music for onmyio-ji" and this is one of my favourite tracks on this cd. we did this record without a computer being involved once.
i remember the feeling of freedom when we did this record. no screen that kept you distracted from listening, instead: two tascam da88 digital tape recorders for immediate recordings and a bunch of synthesizers and outboard effects. by the end of the week we actually could not believe that there was no computer involved. we did the mixdown on a cd-recorder. this week taught me at least two things:
1. while you listening to a piece of music; don´t look at the computerscreen; it distracts you and keeps away the surprising moment
2. try to use your computer more like a tape recorder; it keeps you focused on the actual performance that you are about to record.

Brian Eno Music For Prague --
Notes: Not to be confused with the inevitable 2-CD bootleg audience recording, or one of the other CDs of musical components for Music for Prague also escaped into the wild, featuring effected piano and synth. This was a one-off CD of sound sketches made by Brian when he was working on his 1998 installation with Jiri Prihoda in Prague. The CD was donated to an auction in aid of South London Arts in January 02001 and raised £400. The CD was again put up for auction on eBay in September 2017 (asking price $15,000 in aid of Harmony of Life Fellowship, Inc.) with the following description: 'Item is new, listened to once, and put away for decades. This was the auction CD mentioned on enoweb that sold in South African Auction and I am second owner purchase from Gent in England. Has original mailing envelope and all items including baggage claim printed and tour booklet for Prague. The ultimate rarest Brian Eno "piece of History!" Hand written by Mr. Eno on Labeled CDr: Low G# Motorboat / '12' Loud / 20 IDS Different Volumes. This One-Off came with 14 page Installation Program and a small baggage label hand written by Mr. Eno with "Not a Work Of Art, But A Piece of History" and autographed. Low G♯ Motorboat was one of the original discs used in the Music for Prague Installation, that was setup in various CD players on shuffle mode throughout the entire installation, giving the installation "music in motion" whereas you would not hear the exact same audio output at any given time! This original one-off CDr was hand made and produced by Brian Eno. Motorboats is the most unique because it contained sounds recorded from DAT on location from Prague under the Charles Bridge where the motorboats take tourists on the river journey. It is quite different from other Eno CDs in that it is just sound effects extracted from the Motorboats in Prague. When placed in the shuffle mode in the installation, this score brought unpredicted crescendos in motion and certain subsonic responses.'

Brian Eno and J. Peter Schwalm Drawn From Life n UK: Virgin Venture CDVE 954 LC03098 / 7243 8 10148 20
US: Astralwerks

Notes: The culmination of ideas Brian had been working towards for many years, without the malice of Nerve Net or the refrigeration units of The Drop. Press reviews gave it an average of 3 stars out of 5 and words like "warm" and "organic" abounded.

For a time, Virgin had a dedicated site for the album, with streaming tracks, videos from the launch party and Dark Jam (see below).

Interviewed by John Diliberto for Pulse! Magazine, Brian explained about the voices of his daughters Irial and Darla on "Bloom": ' "Interestingly, fake!" says Eno with a laugh. "Because they both appear in that piece as the same age, about a year and a half old. They are in fact a year and a half different in age, so it's sort of collaged together from two different recordings." Eno's daughters reveal an underpinning of nostalgia to this otherwise off-center slice of junk electro-abstraction as they recite the nursery rhyme "Pease Porridge Hot". "I love the way she says 'nine days aawold,'" says Eno with a touch of wistfulness. "Old! That's such a difficult word for a child." '

As SSEYO and Koan are no more, and Freesense Sonified E-mail never caught on, this track has wandered off.

Brian Eno Curiosities Volume 1 Opal -- OPALCD03. Available exclusively through Enoshop

Notes: 15 previously unreleased tracks from the Eno studio, curated by Brian's technical assistant Marlon Weyeneth. Somewhat of a Drop Vol 2 -- all the tracks appear to be from the last decade. "Castro Haze" and "Manila Envelope" appear in mildly different mixes from their Headcandy incarnations and "Late Evening in Jersey" (which appeared on the soundtrack of Heat) is a longer version of The Drop's "Hazard".

Here's what Opal's Press Release said:

RELEASE DATE: Friday 5th September

This latest release from the Enoshop is the first in a series of collections of little known Eno work from recent years which has been collected together and compiled by his diligent and long suffering studio assistant, Marlon Weyeneth.


The pieces on this record are singularities, things that didn't fit together with enough other things to ever make a whole album.

Thus 'Circus Mathematics' was imagined as part of a group of pieces called 'Mathematical Piano Music', but only three others ever materialized, and 'Ambient Savage' is the only surviving example of the little-known but much-mourned 'Afro-Ambient' genre.

'Castro Haze' was the first, and, as it transpired, the last representative of the cycle which was to have been known as 'Unsuccessful Boxers' - the Castro in question was a welterweight who ultimately failed in his bid to seize fame.
The 'Thrash Funk' category of which 'War Fetish' is a proud member, has been more prolific but still not quite abundant enough to justify a whole CD. 'Work/Wank' belongs to a long tradition of songs with very few lyrics (such as 'Hot Pastrami', 'Mashed Potatoes' and 'Wipeout'), and, together with 'Draw One Animal' formed the beginning of my projected CD: 11 things to do on a dull afternoon. Unfortunately this project failed because I could only think of three.

Brian Eno is currently at work in his studio on his forthcoming song album, tentatively called Brian Eno: The Love Collection.

Curiosities Volume 1 will be exclusively available from the Enoshop website The Enoshop website has been set up to provide an outlet for the side projects which keep distracting Brian from work on his song album.

John Cale Hobo Sapiens  

Notes: Hi; as a long time fan of the site, I thought you'd like to know that Eno & his daughters appear on John Cale's (excellent) new album, Hobosapiens. The liner notes read: "[Thanks] to Brian Eno for the groove and his daughters Irial and Darla for the giggles on 'Bicycle'." The musician credits clarify said groove as the drum track, though the bass sounds pretty Eno-esque as well. -- Jason Minnix

UNKLE Never, Never, Land UK: Island Records MWU 001CD
Enoweb Notes: Richard Joly writes that the May 4, 2003 issue of the JockeySlut has a cover story on UNKLE. In it we learn that "Eno and Jarvis Cocker meanwhile have a synthesizer stand-off on 'I Need Something Stronger'." This will be on UNKLE's next album, "Never, Never, Land", to be released at end of June by Mo Wax/Island. Curiously, the article carries a photo of a tracklist and on the photo, the Eno/Jarvis track is called "Oil + Steel".

Notes: James Lavelle teamed up with Richard File, a singer / songwriter, to produce this 2nd album by UNKLE. Brian Eno played the synth on "I Need Something Stronger". He was also responsible for Kaos, effects, and programming on this track. The music of "I Need Something Stronger" was improvised by James Lavelle and Richard File with Antony Genn, Brian Eno and Jarvis Cocker of the Pulp. It featured a sample of "Wavesheets" which was performed and written by John Fiddy and Sammy Burdson.

Release Notes: The Island Records version of "Never, Never, Land" has a bonus track called "Awake The Unkind". Subsequent versions have different bonus tracks.

UK: Independent Records Ltd IRL 018
Damien Dempsey
Notes: Damien Dempsey released this breakthrough album under the direction of veteran producer John Reynolds. Brian Eno played atmospheric guitars ... but it's not clear on which tracks. On the "Collaborations" compilation by Sinéad O'Connor, he was credited with atmospheric guitar on "It's All Good". Sandy Nelson wrote an album review  for the Robotfist website and she reported that Brian also played atmospheric guitars on "Ghosts Of Overdoses". Miles Hunt penned an online article for the LeftLion website and he shared the rare privilege of hearing an unmixed version of "Celtic Tiger" with contributions by Brian and Sinéad.

Release Notes: The Clear Records version of "Seize The Day" has a hidden track. It's the title song from the 3:42 mark of track number 10. The UK and US versions have "Seize The Day" as an indexed track.

Brian Eno Here Come The Warm Jets, Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy), Another Green World, Before & After Science
Virgin EMI & Astralwerks

Note: The first set of "Original Masters" CDs, given the collective title "Early Works". Virgin's site The Raft reported at the time that the music "will not be 'remastered' but instead will be re-transferred by Simon Heyworth from the original analogue masters". There's a mention of the mastering equipment here. Simon did an excellent job with the sound quality, but there were problems with the CD mastering.

The press release said:

He co-wrote with David Bowie on Low, Heroes and Lodger, was a founder member of Roxy Music, as well as the producer of U2's The Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby, Zooropa, All That You Can't Leave Behind, Talking Head's Fear of Music and Remain in Light, Devo's Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! and many more.

But that's just part of the story.

Now Brian Eno's groundbreaking albums have been digitally remastered and reissued in special edition digipak packages as part of a series called "Original Masters." Very often when albums are remastered, the tapes are re-equalized, remixed, in other words altered from the way they were originally delivered by the artist. Not so with the albums in the "Original Masters" series.

Using an ATR analog mastering deck with Aria Reference Series class A discrete electronics, Simon Heyworth was able to coax a higher level of fidelity out of these recordings than ever before heard, while keeping the original mastering intact.

"What I quickly learnt was that many of the EQ'd Production Masters at the time were absolutely 'spot on'," says Heyworth, "and why shouldn't they be when you think about it, this was the end of a long artistic endeavour and are we saying that they didn't get it right at that point? This is nonsense of course because if it was a landmark recording and sold lots of albums it must have been right! The Artist and Producer all decided at the time that this was 'it'. Should we be tampering with that piece of art - after all we don't go around saying let's Re-master a great painting."

The result is a clarity and depth of sound to these albums not heard since their initial playback in the recording studio. And more important, no attempts have been made to re-equalize, remix or in any way tamper with the original EQ'ed analogue production masters. These "Original Masters" sound just as Brian Eno originally intended them to be heard.

CD mastering flaw:
On the first pressing of Another Green World, the problem was described by EnoWeb visitor Feline1 thus: 'If you haven't heard one of these discs yourself, lemme try and explain what happens - it's quite odd - "Everything Merges With The Night" fades in for some several seconds, it's not like it just abruptly begins with a chunk missing from the start... but the first vocal line is "I've been waiting all evening" - it's like they've seamlessly removed the correct first line "Rosalie" and digitally spliced the join back together." Virgin issued an official statement: "Subsequent to approval of a correct version of Another Green World on reference CD, there was a DDP image file corruption which has affected the track 'Everything Merges With The Night'. Please take your CD back to where you bought it, and the retailer will exchange it for you. Although working as fast as possible to remanufacture, the new discs won't be ready until the end of next week." Incorrect pressings were supposed to have been withdrawn from sale by Virgin EMI but we received several reports of instances where this had not occurred. Astralwerks offered a higher level of support to its customers.

Quibbles about packaging:
The CDs are packaged in digipacks inside a protective plastic sleeve. There is very little tolerance in the sleeve which means re-inserting the digipack into the sleeve is often difficult.
The designer positioned the text on the spines in a non-standard orientation (most go from top to bottom with the baseline on the left. These go from bottom to top with baseline on the right).
The four Peter Schmidt print watercolour images, an important part of Before And After Science, were excluded from the packaging and the album's original subtitle Fourteen Pictures was cut down to Ten Pictures.

Fripp & Eno The Equatorial Stars Discipline Global Mobile / Enoshop
Note: Fripp and Eno together again -- with today's technology rather than tape loops.
Phil Manzanera 6PM
Note: Brian contributes "Enotonic treatments" on "Broken Dreams", "Waiting For The Sun to Shine" & "Manzra". The stand-out track is "Wish You Well", an elegy for Ian MacDonald.

Note: Brian is credited for "processing" on the track "Milkshake Roadmap".
Various Artists Unity: The Official Athens 2004 Olympic Games Album  
Note: The track "Still Standing" is a collaboration between Brian Eno, Rachid Taha & Skin (formerly of Skunk Anansi).
Brian Eno Nerve Net / The Shutov Assembly All Saints Records ASCDA41 / ASCDA42
Note: All Saints gets in on the re-release action, with reissues of these albums. The UK Nerve Net included Jerome Lefdup's video for "Ali Click" and the lyrics for the first time; Shutov had additional graphics in the booklet. These CDs were not around for long, as the following year All Saints re-released the albums again in a tie-up with Rykodisc, sometimes with other bonus tracks that varied according to territory.
Brian Eno Discreet Music, Music for Airports, The Plateaux of Mirror and On Land Virgin EMI & Astralwerks
Note: The second set of "Original Masters" CDs, given the collective title "Ambient Works".

Note: More previously unreleased fun. The inside cover includes a list of future Curiosities music tracks, but the series ground to a halt after compiler Marlon Weyeneth left Opal.
  Hammerheads BBC
Note: Soundtrack for a television documentary in the BBC's The Natural World strand on Hammerhead sharks. Not released although some was re-used on the track "Passing Over" on Another Day On Earth, and the UK & US re-releases of Music For Films III each have a different "Shark" bonus track.
James Perry/Mopmonster Baby's On Fire Mopmonster
Note: A cover.
David Bowie 1.Outside  
Note: Limited Edition Re-issue with bonus second CD of tracks from singles. Very tricky to listen to in one go... once you've heard "The Heart's Filthy Lesson" and "Hallo Spaceboy" a couple of times you really don't want to hear yet another remix. Does include "Nothing To Be Desired" which is pretty much in keeping with the rest of the album.
David Bowie Earthling  
Note: Limited Edition Re-issue with bonus second CD of tracks from singles including 3 remixes of the Bowie-Eno track "I'm Afraid Of Americans".
Neil Conti The Dark Side of the Groove AMG / samples4
Note: Drum loops and sessions for use with audio software (there are different versions for various platforms, e.g, Apple Garageband, WAV, Kontakt etc), including Eno processing. Not to be confused with a compilation CD that goes by the same name.

Brian Eno Music For Films, Apollo, Thursday Afternoon and More Music For Films Virgin EMI & Astralwerks

Notes: The third batch of re-issued "Original Masters" CDs, given the collective title "Soundtrack Works". More Music For Films combines most of the tracks from Music For Films Director's Edition and the tracks that appeared on Music For Films 2 in the Working Backwards boxed set.

CD mastering flaws:
On Music For Films, the first note at the start of the track "Quartz" is missing. This fault has never been rectified.
On the first pressing of More Music For Films, track 18 -- which should be "Climate Study" -- was in fact "Approaching Taidu"; track 20 is again "Approaching Taidu". Incorrect pressings were supposed to have been withdrawn from sale by Virgin EMI but we received several reports of instances where this had not occurred. Astralwerks offered a higher level of support to its customers. Even in 2009 the version sold on iTunes retains this error.
On the Director's Edition of Music For Films, "Fuseli" was an alternate title for the Music For Films track "A Measured Room"; on More Music For Films, the CD compiler has used "Patrolling Wire Borders" instead.

Limitless Romance I'll Come Running Xip
Note: A cover.
Bronagh Gallagher Precious Soul Saltydog Records
Note: Brian contributed "spectacular arrangements and instrumentation" according to the site. Michael Staley told us: Brian provides Male Backing Vocals and Vibe Organ on the song "He Don't Love You" and composed the strings (played by Nell Catchpole, of course) on the song "'Hooks".

Brian Eno Another Day On Earth Rykodisc / official site
Note: Brian's long-awaited solo album of songs. Includes some tracks trailed years previously and "Under" from the cancelled My Squelchy Life and Vocal Box Set disc 3. The Japanese version (on the Beat Records label) includes a bonus track, "The Demon Of The Mines". One of Brian's working titles for this album was The Love Collection!

Brian Eno This Hannibal / Ryko hncd1475ths
Note: Promo CD, one track only. Running time 3.30.
Harold Budd/Brian Eno The Pearl Virgin EMI & Astralwerks
Note: The final "Original Master" CD. This time released just on its own, unlike the other batches of 4. We could speculate that perhaps there were originally plans to release other collaborations in a series with this (e.g. Jon Hassell's Fourth World Vol 1 Possible Musics & Laraaji's Ambient 3: Day Of Radiance). The ways of the Music Industry are a mystery to the humble fan.
Coldplay X+Y
Note: Brian plays additional synthesizer on the track "Low".
Various Artists The Wire Tapper 13 The Wire
Note: Includes Fovea Hex track "Don't These Windows Open" -- Brian sings and plays fretless bass; this is a different mix from the version on the Fovea Hex EP Bloom.

  These Small Noises BBC
Note: Karl Hyde from Underworld sat in for Rob Da Bank on BBC Radio 1 on Thursday 8th September. Included in his set was an as yet unreleased track by Brian called "These Small Noises" with vocals by Fovea Hex's Clodagh Simonds and Brian (ELO-type vocoder & Drawn From Life-type vocal jiggery-pokery) plus keyboards by Jon Hopkins.
Michel Faber & Brian Eno The Fahrenheit Twins Enoshop
Note: Free CD included with the September 2005 issue of Prospect magazine. Michel Faber reads his novella over an icy soundscape by Brian. We are told Brian did another version of the soundscape so there would be a choice. The reading was later released as a digital download by Enoshop. At one time you could download a free podcast of a long excerpt from this at the site of Michel Faber's publisher Canongate, but it appears to have vanished in a re-design.
Hector Zazou Quadri + Chromies Materiali Sonori
Note: DVD and CD of somewhat harsh electronica. A magazine called Experience also had a cover DVD related to Quadri + Cromies with an unreleased track by Brian and Hector called "Ellipses".
Phil Manzanera 50 Minutes Later
Note: Brian contributes to a few tracks including a long remix, "Enotonik Bible Black".
Brian Eno 14 Video Paintings All Saints Records / Hannibal / Rykodisc
Note: US DVD release combining Brian's ambient videos, Mistaken Memories of Mediaeval Manhattan and Thursday Afternoon. The booklet was written by EnoWeb's Tom Boon and Brian Eno without them ever meeting.
Brian Eno How Many Worlds
Note: Downloadable single, a 4-minute edit of the track. Doesn't seem to be available any more. It was just an edited version, nothing fancy or extra. Also produced as a promo CD from Hannibal (HNCD1475HMW).
Fovea Hex Bloom Janet Records / Die Stadt / BurningShed (digital)
Note: 1st of 3 EPs in the Neither Speak Nor Remain Silent series. Brian contributed voice, played fretless bass, and helped to create the vocal loops. A limited edition bonus CD, The Explanation, was also available, featuring material from Bloom remixed by Andrew Mckenzie of the Hafler Trio.

  The Jacket DVD Warner official site

Note: This film has been responsible for the largest number of queries on a single topic in EnoWeb's history: people asking where they can obtain the "love theme" played throughout the film. Alas it has not been released. There is no soundtrack album available. Most of the music from the film is not available on CD and so titles are unknown. We think the music is licensed to Warner Independent and so it would be up to them if it was to be released. We asked Opal several times but they said they had no plans to release it. For the record, a little of the music has been released: the track at the start of the film (Gulf War section) is "Fleeting Smile" by Roger Eno (Brian's brother), available on the album Music For Films III (All Saints Records/Hannnibal/Ryko label). There are also excerpts from "Going Unconscious" from the album Another Day On Earth and an alternate mix of "The Demon Of The Mines" (from the Japanese edition of Another Day On Earth). One of the tracks over the closing credits is by The Jane Does.

Brian Eno 14 Video Paintings All Saints Records / Hannibal / Rykodisc
Note: UK DVD release combining Brian's ambient videos, Mistaken Memories of Mediaeval Manhattan and Thursday Afternoon. The booklet was written by EnoWeb's Tom Boon and Brian Eno without them ever communicating. On the first pressing there was a mastering error that put the Thursday Afternoon soundtrack on one of the orientations of Mistaken Memories of Mediaeval Manhattan.

Note: Remastered with bonus tracks: "Pitch to Voltage", "Two Against Three", "Vocal Outtakes", "New Feet", "Defiant", "Number 8 Mix" and "Solo Guitar With Tin Foil" plus Bruce Connor's "Mea Culpa" video. Not "Into The Spirit World" from the Ghosts bootleg though.
Fovea Hex HUGE Janet Records / Die Stadt / BurningShed (digital)
Note: Features Brian Eno (Keyboards), Roger Doyle, Laura Sheeran, Carter Burwell, Percy Jones, Lydia Sasse, Sarah McQuaid and Hugh O'Neill. There was also a limited edition bonus cd, The Discussion, remixing elements of HUGE. The third EP in the series, Allure, was released in 2007 but did not include Brian (it did have Eno collaborators Robert Fripp & Percy Jones though).

Brian Eno 77 Million  

Note: Limited edition (1,000) audio CD produced to accompany 77 Million - An Audio Visual Installation By Brian Eno at Laforet Museum in Harajuku. Not music from the software program but a Curiosities-style collection of disparate pieces. A fair amount of the material previously appeared on The Drop, the CMAPT/Smart New Composers album and the Nile game. Track listing is as follows:

1. Never Stomp -- previously unreleased (Drop-style)
2. System Piano -- Rayonism from The Drop (different mix)
3. Bonk 12 -- previously unreleased (Drop-style)
4. Luxor Night Car -- Plot 180 from Passengers (different mix)
5. Targa Summer -- La-la-la from Smart (with a small extract from one of the Headcandy pieces and a bit of speech at the end)
6. Cold -- Iced World from The Drop
7. Little Slicer -- Out/Out from The Drop (different mix)
8. Surf Birds -- Background music from Words Spoken by Count Meketre / Thutmoses' Discovery of the Sphinx from Nile
9. Targa -- Long SQ/Short SQ from Smart underlying previously unreleased tracks and a loop from the Creation story from Nile.

The inclusion of Smart pieces was a little surprising, as the story at the time of that album's release was that Brian had not been greatly involved in its creation -- yet here the tracks are clearly presented as Brian's work.

Brian Eno 77 Million Paintings
All Saints Records / Hannibal / Rykodisc

Notes: Brian Eno’s 77 Million Paintings is a generative project - a "visual music" program using television and computer screens to create constantly evolving paintings.

Available in limited-edition deluxe numbered packaging, it features a generative software disc playable on Mac or PC together with an exclusive interview DVD and a 52-page hardbound book with an extensive essay by Eno covering his career as a visual artist, fully illustrated with previously unseen images. The 77 million paintings are generated from handmade slides, randomly combined by the computer using specially developed software. It also processes the music that accompanies the paintings in a similar way, so the selection of elements and their duration in the piece are arbitrarily chosen, forming a virtually infinite number of variations.

"I think of these things as visual music. The screen is not being used to tell a story - which is what screens normally do - but to show a painting that changes all the time. One of the interesting things about this is that the artist doesn’t actually know what the result is going to be. There will be unique moments in this for every viewer, and every viewer’s experience will be somewhat different. This could be used just as you’d use a painting. People now have larger screens, but these big objects sitting in their rooms are dormant for a lot of the time. If you’re not actually watching television, what you have is a big black hole in the wall. 77 Million Paintings is intended to occupy that downtime so that, instead of having a dead hole in the wall, you have a living picture." -- Brian Eno

No longer available after it sold out. The software still works fine on Windows PCs with Windows 10 (although it may insist on a resolution of 1024x768), but stopped working on Macintoshes after Mac OS 10.6 because 10.7 Lion removed Carbon support. It is surprising that an updated version has not been created, but there you go. They don't even appear to have bothered to renew

Greenpeace had planned to webcast the performance live but had technical difficulties. Included bells by Brian -- from the web stream it looked as though he might have been conducting, we weren't sure. Not released.

Long Now Bald Guys s1m0n3 Kevin Kelly's Cool Tools; the track URL has changed to
Note: MP3 posted by Kevin Kelly, created by Brian as an example of the music that can quickly be created using Logic (sadly the MP3 is over-recorded & distorted). In terms of lyrics and idiot glee this is the closest thing we've had in decades to 70's Eno. Apparently created as a tribute to s1m0n3 (Simone Davalos), former office manager at the Long Now Foundation (the singers are Long Now members). The Simone lyrics refer to her leaving and the fact she's not around to help them any more, having moved to Robotics. Simone was previously described on Long Now's site as "head logistician and gal friday for the Robotics Society of America, Robolympics, and Combots, and judges robot combat tournaments in her spare time, which is nonexistent. She enjoys filing and preaches stress relief through power tools."

Gescom A1-D1

Skam Records
Note: Kevin Dunnill writes: Just got hold of the latest Gescom CD and instantly recognised the track b1 as the Eno/Byrne track "Come with Us" from My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. Some Googling later it appears that each track on their new CD is made from samples of other records. Definitely one for the completists.
Belinda Carlisle Voila

Note: Brian plays keyboards. Belinda told "Brian Eno came into the project because he’s a friend of John Reynolds. He liked the tracks, so he did his thing, took tracks away with him, and I can’t tell you what that was for me. Even over the Stones and the Beatles, Roxy Music is my all-time favorite band, and I’ve been such a Brian Eno fan for years and years. So to actually have him involved in the project was a dream come true."
Afterimages Afterimages 1: Malcolm Le Grice Volume 1 DVD

LUX / Amazon
Note: A compilation of early films by Malcolm Le Grice, including the 1970 Berlin Horse which has an audio soundtrack by Brian (his earliest known released work). Originally this DVD was "only available to colleges and libraries for class room use, and ... not for individual purchase". We commented: "At £100 + VAT & postage it might be a little out of the range of the casual purchaser anyway..." In 2009 it was made available to the general public (see Amazon link or your usual supplier).

Includes 2 CDs, one of which has an excerpt from Brian's Ritan Park Bells installation (quite harsh and stark, without the mollifying influence of Lydian Bells' drone), sound art from the other artists involved including Scanner, and some favourite sounds chosen by citizens of Beiing, Chongqing, Guangzhou and Shanghai. There are still some web pages about it including the public interview with Brian that appears in the book.

Daniel Lanois Here Is What Is

Red Floor Records
Note: Exclusive Goldtop Edition of Daniel Lanois' Here Is What Is film and CD, which includes chats with Brian (filmed in murky grey by Anton Corbijn, rather oddly as at one stage Brian is enthusing about the colours of material and the viewer can see nothing of these), plus the track "Blue Bus" (see 02007); Daniel also discusses working on the collaborations with Harold Budd. Towards the end in a sequence designed to look like a drive-in cinema screen, there is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it shot of Brian looking at a rack of clothes which suddenly collapses. Package includes the cd and deluxe dvd with over an hour of extra footage, including alternate versions of songs from the film, 12 page booklet with photos and lyrics, 3 photographs from a pool of 12 (1 signed), Here Is What Is debossed Moleskine Cahier Notebook (thin), plus a rock and roll button. Limited to 3000 copies. No kitchen sink though.
Phil Manzanera The Unknown Zone Originally a paid-for download from Mvine -- now free from Expression Records
Note: Digital-only track with Brian, Robert Wyatt and Yaron Stavi. Phil Manzanera said on his site: 'A few years ago when Robert Wyatt was recording "Cuckooland" at my studio Eno popped round for dinner, a chat, and an overdub or two and after a few bevies we had a jam. This track, "The Unknown Zone" grew out of that night's improvisations, as did my track "50 minutes later".
Coldplay Violet Hill Coldplay
Note: Produced by Brian and Markus Dravs. Nice long drone at start reminscent of "From This Moment" on Drawn From Life, and (internal?) piano sound. This was free via digital download for the first week of release. Also provided as one side of a vinyl 7" single free with the NME on 7th May 2008, together with a track unavailable elsewhere, "A Spell A Rebel Yell" [VIOLET002].
Coldplay Viva La Vida, or Death And All His Friends Parlophone / EMI
Note: Produced by Brian and Markus Dravs. Jon Hopkins also co-produced: the harmonies at the start of "Life In Technicolor" and "The Escapist" are typical of his work. iTunes orders include the bonus acoustic track "Lost?" and pre-orders also received "Lovers In Japan (Acoustic Version)". During a live concert on BBC Radio 1, Chris Martin introduced "Lost!" with the words "This is for Brian and Markus, who saved our lives".

2) CD at $11.99 plus $3.00 postage, available in November 2008 with immediate digital download of the music tracks & booklet
3) Deluxe limited edition CD package at $69.99 plus $10 postage, available in November 2008 with immediate digital download of the music tracks, booklet and a screensaver. This includes four exclusive bonus songs (NEVER THOUGHT, WALKING ALONG THE RIVER, THE EYES, THE PAINTING -- not included in the digital download by the way), a short film about the album, Holding Pattern screensaver for PC & Mac, and an Everything That Happens miniature hardbound book. That was the plan, anyway -- in late November Davd Byrne sent an e-mail to explain "we had to have the little house on the top of the container painted better - in China - and you know how it is with house construction - you can get quality, speed or affordable price - but not all three. So speed was sacrificed. We PROMISE they will be in everyone's hands by Christmas, Channukah, Kwanza."

Note: Computer game with music -- by Brian and others -- that mixes pre-authored musical components in a generative fashion to suit the on-screen events.

Jason Donovan Let It Be Me  
Note: iTunes version includes the bonus track "Nobody But Me" co-written with Brian, though his contribution is rather difficult to discern. Jason told the Birmingham Mail, "Brian Eno's a neighbour of mine and I was strumming some stuff outside and he said 'why don't you throw these chords in'. I live in a mews where he has a studio. I asked him about some of the songs and there are two tracks on the album that he recommended." Eno told MOJO: "I was sitting here one day; Jason knocks on the door. I know him, he's a friend of mine and he says, 'Hi Brian, I'm doing this record of rock'n'roll songs. Can you think of any songs I could do?' I've got loads of old rock'n'roll and doo wop songs and went through all my collection and found about twenty songs that I thought he'd like to consider. I lent him the records and he ended up recording about three or four. But then I happened to say to him, 'You know, these kinds of songs are actually pretty easy to write.' [Picks up an acoustic guitar] All you need is to tune your guitar to a major chord, and then you go [uses index finger to make barre chord and starts playing]. He says, 'Oh, that's really good.' So I played it again and he started singing, and he said, 'I could make a song out of that.' I put it on a CD for him. That's the end of the story. [Eno carries on playing] Anyone can play a guitar like this."

It's quite long, though, and EnoWeb found itself wondering who the audience is for something that tellsthe story of Brian Eno's early career. Most fans will already know this stuff, most non-fans won't be interested. The film-makers also make use of some footage that they don't own the rights to, which is rather unsporting. And the publicity statement "Also contains many extra features including extended interviews, digital biographies and more" is a fib -- there is one single bit of interview that was not included in the main feature (4 minutes of Lloyd Watson on the 801), screens of text about the DVD contributors, and NO MORE. And they don't mention Music For Films.

It is the beginning of “The Secret of Drowning,” just that little minute, the way it starts, that’s what he sent me. And he said ‘write something haunting and amazing for this by tomorrow,’ in true Dave form. In true Carina Round form, five years later I took it into him in the studio, finished, and said ‘Listen to this, it’s really good,’ and he was like ‘Wow, I forgot about that.’ That’s how that collaboration came about. I never actually worked in the studio with Eno."

Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers

Scape iTunes and GenerativeMusic
Note: A generative music album/app for the Apple iPad, which allows users to combine different elements to make music. The most complex of the duo's music apps. To begin with, you are presented with a sub-set of the elements, and a new one is added each time the app is run. Elements react differently depending on the others with which they are combined, and sometimes behave differently at different times of day. Eno & Chilvers said: "Scape makes music that thinks for itself ... Scape is a new form of album which offers users deep access to its musical elements. These can be endlessly recombined to behave intelligently: reacting to each other, changing mood together, making new sonic spaces. Can machines create original music? Scape is our answer to that question: it employs some of the sounds, processes and compositional rules that we have been using for many years and applies them in fresh combinations, to create new music." Here's Brian's guide on YouTube, and there are many other examples there. You can also Meet The Developers.
Brian Eno LUX Warp Records

Note: A long ambient piece divided into four seasons, based on the installation Twelve Seasons - Music for the Great Gallery. Trivia: This was originally planned as a single track (the advance copies were in this format), but had to be split up into four tracks to allow distribution on vinyl. Here's Brian talking to Mother Jones:

BE: This actually has two genesis stories. The first story was that I was commissioned to make a piece of music for a particular building in Turin that connects two palaces. It's a long gallery—about 100 meters long, 15 meters high—designed in the 1740s by an architect called [Filippo] Juvarra. About a million visitors every year move through it; the people who run the place said they wanted to make them slow down a little bit because they felt that people were kind of racing from one palace to another and not noticing that they were moving through this beautiful space. So they said "Would you make a piece of music to slow people down?" basically. So I made a piece of music that I thought would work. And then I flew over to Turin with my piece of music—all the speakers and everything as I had specified were set up—and I put the piece on, and within 20 seconds I knew it was completely the wrong piece.
MJ: Why?
BE: It just didn't connect with the place at all. First of all it sounded very modern, and the building doesn't look like that. It's an amazing piece of Baroque architecture. It's full of details and, most importantly, it's full of light. It's got huge windows on both sides, so the main impression when you first walk in there is of light and the changing character of light during the day. And my piece had been made in my studio—it's a nice piece, by the way, but very interior, very reflective, introspective; quite dark, I guess you'd say. I had my little portable studio with me, so I thought, okay, I'll spend a couple days sitting here and I'll try to find out what sorts of things are going to work. And by the time I left, I had a palette of sounds and the sort of feeling of pacing that was going to work, and then I came back to London and I made this piece. So the two stories are a) the invitation to make music for a particular space and b) the total failure.
MJ: Which one of those two pieces became LUX?
BE: The music that is being used in the palace became the basis for this album. I set up a thing in my studio where I had a very comfortable bed to lie on and I put speakers at each side of the pillow so I could lie down and be inside this piece of music. (I don't like headphones.) And I did that because I wanted to adjust the music for the palace. While I was doing that, I was thinking, "I really love listening to this piece and, furthermore, it's pretty different to any other piece that I've done." I mean, I'm sure somebody that doesn't know my work well would think, "Yeah that sounds like another piece of clinky-clonk Brian Eno music." To me it's different.
MJ: And your piece will run at the palace for five years, around the clock?
BE: No. Originally I thought it was going to be an around-the-clock idea and so I thought of making a generative piece, which is to say a piece that would keep remaking itself differently forever. But then I heard that actually what they wanted is to have an hour on, an hour off. In fact, I sort of suggested that as well, because I thought there are going to be people who come to this gallery who just want to be in the gallery without Mr. Eno putting his interpretation of the experience on it. And so I started to explore this idea of making the music episodic. And also something that you don't have to listen to from beginning to end—you can enter at any point and leave at any point. So I started working with the idea of permutation, the ultimate something-for-nothing idea where you take a small number of elements and then you cluster them together in as many different ways as time and nature will permit.

Sebastian Rochford

Days And Nights At The Takeaway The Leaf
Note: Polar Bear’s Sebastian Rochford curated a monthly digital singles club during 2012. Each single took the form of a two-track digital bundle, released on the last Friday of the month, and featured different collaborators. In December it was Brian Eno and Karl Hyde for the track "Dream Nails". Sebastian Rochford told Leaf:"The song started as an improvisation guided by Brian ... Seeing Brian playing the bass and keyboard in this little space and having to press the record button on my computer himself made me feel first embarrassed, but also amazed at his humbleness. For me, this kind of openness is part of what makes him such a continuously inspired creator ... I loved having Karl play on the track too, he plays so beautifully and sensitively. I didn’t even know he played guitar! To have both these incredible musicians give their time to make music with me in my place was really very special for me."

Brian Eno The Ship Warp

Note: The first solo album since LUX, co-produced by Peter Chilvers. A deep experience with influences from throughout Eno's musical career, yet breaking new ground in song-structure and range.

The Ship 2. Fickle Sun (i) Fickle Sun 3. Fickle Sun (ii) The Hour Is Thin 4. Fickle Sun (iii) I'm Set Free
Bonus track for Japan: Away
Available in a range of formats:

LP – 2xLP in printed inners in gatefold with 4 art prints

The album is unobtrusively dedicated "to dawn"; this is a reference to David Bowie's joke name sign-off in his final e-mail to Brian.

Brian Eno Light Music Paul Stolper Gallery
Note: An installation of Eno's Lightboxes and lenticular print art over April-May 2016. The installation soundtrack was an unreleased piece called "Late That Autumn" which appeared to come from the same recording sessions as the Otherworlds soundtrack. Purchasers of the Lightboxes received a USB flash drive containing unique music for each artwork, otherwise unreleased. The Lightboxes featured slowly colour phasing LED panels that were variously divided or merged into one another; the lenticular prints Center Decenter and Tender Divisor gave the viewer different colours depending on the angle at which they were viewed. After a few weeks almost all the artworks had been sold, the original prices being: Lenticular prints - £495; Lightboxes - £12,000; Pencil sketches - £2,000. The installation also ran at the Galleria Valentia Bonomo in Rome from May to September 2016, in a modified form including Eno's Speaker Flowers.
Brian Eno Stochastic Processional DiEM DiEM25
Note: An anthem for the DiEM25 group, for which non-democracy in Europe is anathema -- it used to play automatically when the web page is visited, but appears to have got removed during a redesign, though Eno's credit appears at the base of the page. Now can be heard in this YouTube video.
Brian Eno and Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker Golden Hours --
Note: A ballet with reworked/remixed versions of Eno's song "Golden Hours". Not released. More information at The Guardian.
Leo Abrahams Steal Time (Brian Eno & Leo Abrahams Remix) Soundcloud

Notes: We gave up trying to keep track of bootlegs. In general, for early material you can be sure it will appear on several different titles. There are a few Fripp/Eno concerts (London & Paris), subseqnetly officially released. There is 801's appearance at the Reading Festival and Brian's performance with The Winkies on BBC radio's Top Gear. After that you might get tracks from the low-circulation Directors' Edition of Music For Films, but most of these are included on the official release More Music For Films anyway. Then there's the original version of My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. There is also a CD of Eno/Cale/Bowie tracks (musicianship unverifiable). There's a longer version of the June 1, 1974 concert (maybe soundchecks). The unreleased album My Squelchy Life, recreated and restored from various sources, was finally released in 2014. A collection of unreleased tracks and snippets from 1.Outside is out there. From the 1990s onwards, the rise of online fan activity, auction sites, and later youTube and Soundcloud etc means that copies may be easily found of most of Brian's unreleased musical activities including installations.
