Talk:Brian Eno/Archive 1

Edit Request[edit]

In 2010, Eno was invited to serve as a mentor for the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative, an international philanthropic programme that pairs masters in their disciplines with emerging talents for a year of one-to-one creative exchange. Out of a very gifted field of candidates, Eno chose Ben Frost, a young Australian musician living in Iceland, as his protégé.[1] RMP2014 (talk) 14:11, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Did it attract any significant press coverage? --McGeddon (talk) 14:27, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes, there was some press coverage, The Telegraph did a whole article.[2] — Preceding unsigned comment added by RMP2014 (talkcontribs) 09:01, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

XP installation music[edit]

During the installation of Windows XP, a piece of music plays in the background which has been variously credited to Brian Eno and Suzanne Ciani.[1][2] The composer of this piece is unclear, and needs a reliable source.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 06:11, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

What is his name?[edit]

The lede and info box both give his name as originally Brian Peter George Eno. But also says his name is Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno.

So when did he add the extra. Did he change it to commemorate his school? MidlandLinda (talk) 22:50, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

This source says: "Educated at St Joseph's College, Birkfield, Ipswich, which was founded by the St John le Baptiste de la Salle order of Catholic brothers (from whom he took his additional name when a student) ..." Martinevans123 (talk) 22:54, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
The Suffolk Eno stem from Walloon religious refugees named Hen(n)ot or Henoth. Through this origin, Brian Eno is distantly related to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katharina_Henot . As an interesting fact, also Katharina Henoth as well as her father Jacob Henot https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob_Henot (whose familiar origins were near Liège in the Walloon part of Belgium) were postmasters. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.219.90.60 (talk) 13:03, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Very interesting, although apparently unconnected to his middle names. Do have any reliable source for this ancestry/connection? Martinevans123 (talk) 13:33, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
The middle names have been made up by Brian Eno maybe as a souvenir to his school upbringing. One maybe should contact him personally why he adopted these names. The proof for blood relationship to the family of Katharina Henot can be found partially on the web. If not suffient for your purposes, contact the genealogists on Belgian and German genealogy reseach pages. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2003:46:1A0B:1B75:2004:5C52:66C7:E94A (talk) 23:44, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Eno's connections[edit]

I'm curious as to why Low isn't credited on the Bowie link in this illustration, seeing as how the second side is basically Eno and Tony Visconti (as with Heroes)? As well, seeing as this diagram is from Enoweb, what is the copyright situation? Kaini (talk) 21:59, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
