Born in [[Suffolk]], Eno studied painting and [[experimental music]] at the art school of Ipswich Civic College in the mid 1960s, and then at [[Winchester School of Art]]. He joined [[glam rock]] group [[Roxy Music]] as [[synthesiser]] player in 1971, recording two albums with the group. He departed in 1973 to record a number of solo albums, coining the term "ambient music" to describe his work on releases such as ''[[Another Green World]]'' (1975) and ''[[Music for Airports]]'' (1978). He also collaborated with artists such as [[Robert Fripp]], [[Cluster (band)|Cluster]], [[Harold Budd]], [[David Bowie]], and [[David Byrne]], and [[music producer|produced]] albums by artists including [[John Cale]], [[Jon Hassell]], [[Laraaji]], [[Talking Heads]] and [[Devo]], and the [[no wave]] compilation ''[[No New York]]'' (1978). In subsequent decades, Eno has continued to record solo albums and work with artists including [[U2]], [[Laurie Anderson]], [[Grace Jones]], [[Slowdive]], [[Coldplay]], [[James Blake (musician)|James Blake]], [[Kevin Shields]], and [[Damon Albarn]].
