V letech 1976–1979 spolupracoval s Davidem Bowiem na jeho „berlínské trilogii“ zahrnující alba Low, Heroes a Lodger. Jeho jméno bylo nadlouho spojeno se jmény jako Harold Budd, John Cale, Cluster, Robert Fripp a David Byrne. Produkoval tři desky Talking Heads včetně Remain in Light, pět alb U2, dále pomáhal anglické skupině James, Laurie Anderson a společně s Markusem Dravsem, Jonem Hopkinsem a Rikem Simpsonem produkoval alba skupiny Coldplay Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends a Mylo Xyloto.


„Všiml jsem si, že na letištích bývá drahý nábytek, prodává se tam luxus, ale hudba, která tam hraje, je šmejdská. Byly to takové rozpustilé melodie ve stylu: ne, nebojte, neumřete, nespadne to s váma. A já jsem se tehdy rozhodl udělat takovou hudbu, která by říkala: …a když teď umřete, tak se taky nic nestane.“

„Umělci ve vyjadřování svých názorů zlenivěli. Mohou přitom vytvářet povědomí o tom, co je cool, a co ne, co je přijatelné, vzrušující, příhodné… Byl bych rád, kdyby umělci uvažovali o věcech, jako je globální oteplování.“


„Whatever you now find weird, ugly, uncomfortable and nasty about a new medium will surely become its signature. CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit - all of these will be cherished and emulated as soon as they can be avoided. It’s the sound of failure: so much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart. The distorted guitar sound is the sound of something too loud for the medium supposed to carry it. The blues singer with the cracked voice is the sound of an emotional cry too powerful for the throat that releases it. The excitement of grainy film, of bleached-out black and white, is the excitement of witnessing events too momentous for the medium assigned to record them.“ A Year With Swollen Appendices

„Honor your mistake as a hidden intention.“

„Well, I am a dilettante. It's only in England that dilettantism is considered a bad thing. In other countries it's called interdisciplinary research.“

„The first Velvet Underground album only sold 10,000 copies, but everyone who bought it formed a band“

„More and more I find I want to be living in a Big Here and a Long Now.“

„You talk to me as if from a distance And I reply with impressions chosen from another time.“


„The biology of purpose keeps my nose above the surface.“

„My interest in making music has been to create something that does not exist that I would like to listen to. I wanted to hear music that had not yet happened, by putting together things that suggested a new thing which did not yet exist.“

„Cooking is a way of listening to the radio.“

„If we are ever going to achieve a rational approach to organizing our affairs, we have to dignify the process of admitting to being wrong. It doesn't help matters at all if the media, or your friends, accuse you of "flip-flopping" when you change your mind. Changing our minds is our hope for the future.“ What Have You Changed Your Mind About?: Today's Leading Minds Rethink Everything


„American television really is pathetic.“

„I think records were just a little bubble through time and those who made a living from them for a while were lucky. There is no reason why anyone should have made so much money from selling records except that everything was right for this period of time. I always knew it would run out sooner or later. It couldn't last, and now it's running out. I don't particularly care that it is and like the way things are going. The record age was just a blip. It was a bit like if you had a source of whale blubber in the 1840s and it could be used as fuel. Before gas came along, if you traded in whale blubber, you were the richest man on Earth. Then gas came along and you'd be stuck with your whale blubber. Sorry mate – history's moving along. Recorded music equals whale blubber. Eventually, something else will replace it.“

„Given the chance, i'll die like a baby, on some faraway beach, when the season's over.“

„Honour thy error as a hidden intention.“
