      ECHOES CELEBRATES BRIAN ENO'S 60TH WITH A WEEK OF SPECIAL PROGRAMMING
      & INTERVIEWS
      Monday 05/12
      AN INTERVIEW WITH BRIAN ENO: ZELIG IN THE MACHINE
      Look in any corner of contemporary music, and Brian Eno is there.
      Brian Eno celebrates his 60th birthday this week. Rarely has an
      artist made such a monumental impact on modern music with such
      subtlety. As part of a week long celebration of Eno's music, we look
      back at his career with interviews from Eno, Roxy Music guitarist
      Phil Manzanera, and members of Bang on A Can.

      AN INTERVIEW WITH BRIAN ENO: ON AN AMBIENT JOURNEY
      The avatar of ambient music tells us the joys of quiet.
      Ambient music is all around us. Mark Prendergast even wrote a book
      called The Ambient Century. All of that comes down to Brian Eno, who
      coined the term "ambient music" in the 1970s, and released his sonic
      manifesto, Music for Airports. Eno talks about his concepts for
      ambient music and Robert Fripp talks about the recording of Discreet Music.

      THE WIT & WISDOM OF BRIAN ENO
      We hear thoughts and musings from the thinking person's musician
      Brian Eno is one of the most profound minds of modern music. He's a
      conceptualist who applies avant-garde principles to pop music by U2
      and Paul Simon, and pop principles to the avant-garde. In this
      wide-ranging meditation, one of the provocateurs of ambient music
      talks about the virtues of live performance as well as Abba and heavy metal.

      TOUCHED BY ENO
      For some musicians, being touched by Eno is like being touched by God.
      Musicians who weren't even born when Brian Eno recorded his seminal
      albums have been touched by his music. Artists from across genres,
      from pop to avant-garde, African to Asian, have found their music
      shaped by Eno, sometimes directly, often as a life-changing
      influence. On Brian Eno's 60th birthday, we hear from some of them
      including Harold Budd, Loop Guru's Dave Muddyman, David Toop, BT and Bluetech.
