Hey so I met Brian Eno last week end and I got him to sign my OP1, it being the most portable and signable of my synths. Quite Proud! I thought I would share.
I struggled with attaching images and getting them the right way around obvs.
That is ace!
Did he comment about his opinion / use of the device?
That is super cool!
I have always been a huge Eno fan: love his generosity as artist speaking in depth and with great intelligence about process and ideas.
I also think that in this photo you guys look like a gay couple that just conceived an OP-1!
I mean it in the most positive way.
epic! hope you showed him some of what it can do. I’m sure he’d love one!
wicked man! thnx 4 sharing!
That is such a wonderfully sweet photo of you both. I also wonder if he said anything about the OP-1. I would think he’d appreciate it at the least, as it is designed with deeply considered, self-imposed limitations, and I emember Eno speaklng before of his preference for limitations over unbounded power.
I would be shocked if Brian Eno didn’t have an OP-1. Weather he uses it or not know knows???
@carmobot Wow what a legendary signature… I’m jealous !!
Lots of Eno fans here which is great. Me too, obviously love the guy, especially the ambient work.
@Piotr: I’m totally gay for Brian anyway! Would love if it was mutual!
this show gets me every time! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoLPtBvFcQw something other than eno’s ambient stuff! this is “roxy music” i wasnt alive when it was popular but it sure does rock! im glad i eventually found it.

(am so glad you didn’t take my comment the wrong way! just looks like love is in the air
Very cool. I may have to link this to ambientonline.org
(I was a bit awestruck too tbh!).
I was once in a elevator with Herbie Hancock and totally froze, couldn’t speak lol.
In 1999, I was asked if I could lend my amp to Franck Black, as he needed one.
I was once sitting at a table with Björk, who said she liked the sound in my work. For real! I also didn’t quite know what to say…
… speaking of “brushes with greatness”.
