  Work Details  
  David Toop and Max Eastley. In 1975, Brian Eno set up the Obscure Label. Its purpose was to provide a venue for experimental music, and make it more known and accessible to the public at large. By associating his name with it, and acting as producer of all ten releases, he enabled hitherto virtually unknown composers to enjoy a larger possible audience. Among those who he rescued from obscurity (pun intended) were Harold Budd, Michael Nyman, the Penguin Cafe Orchestra, and Gavin Bryars.
