In the second of two interviews recorded almost exactly a year apart, Eno talks to Sinead Gleeson about David Bowie, Donald Trump, His album The Ship and, of course, the Markoff Chain generator...

Brian Eno is widely acknowledged as one of the most creative and important innovators working in music today. He began his career as a member of Roxy Music, leaving after the second album (For Your Pleasure) to persue a solo career, developing and eventually coining the term ‘ambient music’. 

Eno has also enjoyed a parallel career as a producer working with David Bowie, Talking Heads, Devo, Grace Jones, Laurie Anderson, Coldplay as well as producing several albums with U2.

Trivia: Eno's 1996 diary  A Year with swollen appendices coincides with the Passengers project and he spent a time in Dublin with Bono (it was not a U2 project, as Paul Mc Guinness reminded him, forcefully). He travelled a lot by DART. Loved the cool green interior in the mornings, but noticed how it didn't work in the fluorescent evening light.
