Brian Eno on Collaboration

“Every collaboration helps you grow. With Bowie, it’s different every time. The secret of our success is… My strength is that I know how to create settings, unusual aural environments. That inspires him. He catches something, uses it in a surprising way and changes my own perception of it.” – Brian Eno

The above quote is Eno discussing the production of Low—one of the first collaborations with Bowie. The Eno/Bowie collaborations rank amongst some of the most revered works in both artists catalogues.

Collaborations can push creative boundaries and inspire you to step out of your comfort zone; Eno and Bowie played to each their strengths and learned from the other, as they bounced ideas back and forth.
