Ambient Music
Throughout the 70s, Eno produced a large number of eclectic and ambient electronic and acoustic albums. He has been credited with coining the term "Ambient Music"
In 1980–1981, Eno collaborated with David Byrne of Talking Heads on
My Life in the Bush of Ghosts
, which was built around radio broadcasts Eno collected while living in the United States, along with sampling recordings from around the world transposed over music predominantly inspired by African and Middle Eastern rhythms.
In the 90s, Eno wrote started developing what he called "Generative Music". The basic premise of generative music is the blending of several independent musical tracks, of varying sounds, length, and in some cases, silence. When each individual track concludes, it starts again mixing with the other tracks allowing the listener to hear an almost infinite combination. Being released on floppy disk, it was possible for the listener to not hear the same album twice.

In late 2006 Eno released 77 Million Paintings, a program of generative video and music specifically for the PC. As its title suggests, there is a possible combination of 77 million paintings where the viewer will see different combinations of video slides prepared by Eno each time the program is launched. Likewise, the accompanying music is generated by the program so that it's almost certain the listener will never quite hear the same arrangement twice.
Eno's repertoire spans various forms of media. writing for soundtracks, video games and even the Microsoft Windows start-up sound from Windows 95.
Eno has also been active in other artistic fields. In March 2008 he collaborated with the Italian artist Mimmo Paladino on a show of the latter's works with Eno's soundscapes at Ara Pacis in Rome. In 2013, Eno sold limited edition prints of artwork from his 2012 album Lux from his website.
