Brian Eno is considered the founder of ambient music. The internationally renowned producer, visual artist, and activist gained international prominence in the early 1970s as a founding member of the British band Roxy Music. His visionary productions include albums with Talking Heads, Devo, U2, Laurie Anderson and Coldplay, while his long list of collaborations includes recordings with David Bowie, David Byrne, Grace Jones, Karl Hyde, James Blake and many others. In addition to his musical career, Eno is also known for his visual experiments with light and video. An example of this is the multi-sensory installation "77 Million Paintings." For it, Eno composed "visual music" conceived as a constantly evolving landscape of sound and images in which every moment is unique. For the Elevate Festival 2021, a specific, room-scale 3D sound adaptation of 77 Million Paintings has been developed, incorporating the Dom im Berg's Ambisonic sound system installed in 2019.
