We go back to this time 40 years ago when David Bowie released Heroes and Brian Eno Before And After Science. Their work together at this time was key in the development of electronic music and it’s emergence into the pop world. We hear both men talking about each other from separate interviews, which makes fascinating listening.
We hear about Eno’s oblique strategies cards, just how quick Bowie was in the studio, how he really needed Eno at that time as he evolved his song writing and musical style, and see the first hints of Eno going into the world of ambient music.
