Life Lessons from Brian Eno

Join clinical psychologist Tanya Byron as she meets the avant-garde maverick and creative mind behind U2 and Coldplay’s success, Brian Eno.


Brian Eno likes to think big. When Microsoft tasked him with composing a 3 ¼ seconds sound for Windows 95 he wrote more than 80 different versions. Shortly afterward he helped start The Long Now Foundation, whose clock will mark the passage of the next ten thousand years. Over more than thirty years he’s mastered art forms and created entirely new ones; helped bring out the best in other artists and in no small way shaped the nature of modern music.

He is a left-field avant garde maverick who helped make U2 and Coldplay two of the biggest bands on the planet; a perfectionist who spends weeks fine-tuning systems and modifying rules to create music that can never be repeated. His Oblique Strategies provided a framework that helps artists around the world get unblocked and find new and ingenious solutions to their creative troubles.

Now he joins us at the School of Life to talk about what he’s learned on that journey – and to reveal how he sees the future shaping up.
