David Bowie: Musician, actor... tech admirer


Re: Techie???

When he worked with Eno on the Berlin trilogy you couldn't walk into a shop and buy the tech they were using and just plug it in. It was often bespoke equipment and cobbled together set-ups. He incorporated tech and production techniques as music technology evolved and also helped to advance other musicians that embraced syths and electronic effects (Eno produced Devo's first album after Bowie met the band). He explored electronic art and film making, Add that to his early interest in computers and the internet, and yeah, he was a techie.
