Brian Eno on the Ecology of Culture.

Brian Eno giving the annual John Peel lecture on the ecology of culture and the importance of social infrastructure. Eno is an astute a sociologist as any of them and fascinating how he links this with his own musical growth.

“So my thought the other night, when I was walking home was new ideas are articulated by individuals, but generated by communities. What we tend to do is – perhaps quite naturally – celebrate the individuals. We’re very keen on the names. But what we don’t do is to look at the whole community that they’re drawing from.”
