Overview of Generative Processes in the work of Brian Eno

Rita Gradim; Pedro Duarte Pestana

Brian Eno is a famous a musician, producer and artist known for his endeavors in rock music who has devoted the latter part of his career to ambient and generative work. There are a few publications regarding his work (Albiez & Pattie, 2016; Sheppard, 2009; Tamm, 1988), but they do not focus exclusively on his generative processes. The only paper that details Eno’s generative music only addresses the concepts of generative music and describes Eno’s apps (Marshall & Loydell, 2017). The paper focuses more on his apps and it does not present a detailed correlation between his background/ influences to his work. This paper bridges that specific gap, by detailing Eno’s school background, his influences, generative processes and how he moved on from traditional to more technological approaches.
